Whiffs of sweet spice and sandalwood accent juicy white grapefruit, pear and pineapple in this full-bodied, fruity blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino and Roussanne. Aged partially in new French barrels, it's prominently oaky but balanced by crisp, citrusy acidity and a pert mineral finish. Best now–2024
