This wine greats you in layers. Ripe fruit is first with sweet apricot, ripe peach, and orange blossom then the warmth of honey and candied caramel apple. Steely minerality and a core of acid focuses the sweetness in this wine. On the palate, the wine has a rich intense mid palate that perfectly balances
sweetness and acidity. The flavors in the palate mirror the aromas and linger nicely on the finish.
The grapes for this wine come from the Yakima Valley’s Spring Creek vineyard. This vineyard is part of the partnership between the Hogue and Mercer families. Spring Creek is located in a cooler site, allowing for intense flavor development while retaining the bright natural acidity of the grapes – creating a wine that is naturally balanced.
