Notes of ripe pear, marzipan meringue and all spice. The palate has flavors of toasty shortbread, caramel, apple and cantaloupe. It is rich and round, balanced by classic cool climate Russian River Valley acidity.
Pair this with all the classics — rich seafood, creamy pasta, and gooey cheeses. Standouts such as scallop scampi, brown sugar-crusted salmon and chicken Marbella are magnificent pairings.
