A blend of 50% coastal grapes (Monterey and Santa Barbara counties) and 50% Sacramento Delta region grapes. Fifty percent aged in stainless steel tanks, 50% in oak. Quite impressive and at the low price, definitely case-worthy. The nose is both spicy and oaky with a hint of melon. It is quite flavorful with a buttery feel and is nutty with light flavors of banana and apricot. - AS 2002-07-08
