Aromas of key lime and coconut with tropical notes.
A full palate loaded with citrus and stone fruit flavors.
Made entirely from hand-picked, estate-grown hillside grapes from our Creston Ridge and Pomar Junction vineyards with limestone shale rock soils. The cooling Templeton Gap breezes moderate summer temperatures and combine with our Linne Calado soils for ideal high quality wine grape growing conditions.
- Vineyard: Pomar Junction & Creston Ridge
This wine is an excellent addition to our reserve label portfolio. Drawing Viognier and Grenache Blanc from our estate vineyard, the addition of Roussanne from the new Merrill Creston Ridge Vineyard allowed us to create a wine reminiscent of a white Côtes du Rhône. Winemaker Jim Shumate blended these three exceptional wines to bring out the best and most vital aspects of all three into a complementary union.
This wine shows the best attributes of our Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Viognier. Complex tropical fruits, dancing acidity, and spiciness.

Exciting pairings for this wine are exotic cheeses with white truffle oil, vegetables in a cream sauce, and succulent and spiced fish or chicken.
