Stephen Tanzer: "Medium yellow. Slightly high-toned aromas of yellow apple, dried fruits, nuts and spices. Dry and chewy in the mouth, with a pronounced phenolic character to the flavors of pear skin, cyanic peach pit, green almond and bitter herbs. Suggests a good bit of skin contact. Not a fruity style but this distinctly idiosyncratic blend should be endlessly flexible with food. Hipster alert!"

Winemaker notes: "The golden sisters of the Pleiades, who share with their siblings the same ambition, which is above all to be delicious. As with all our white wines, we avoid the clumsiness and blurring of distinctions so often the result of new oak, and work instead toward a light, fresh, sweet complexity of both aromatics and flavors, roundness, refreshingly clean acidity and a long, complex finish."
