    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes came from the rocky soils of the Evergreen Vineyard near the town of George, Washington. The vineyard lies on the crest of an undulating basalt ridge between 1300 and 1400 feet in elevation. The initial 250 acres were planted in 1998 with the balance of the current 450 acres completed in 2005. The soil is a shallow clay loam over basalt and caliche, contributing to the wines mineral tone and complex fruit flavors.

    An ever-so-slightly off-dry, zingy, wine with floral and pineapple aromas and flavors plus asian pear, apricot, quince, and a zesty lime peel with great minerality on the palate. This wine, from the strange mind of producer Charles Smith, is so sleek and racy that it never seems sweet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This leads with surprisingly complex scents of anise, verbena and parsley. The palate is all about freshness, simple and direct, with a saline spine informing citrusy limeade flavors, marked by lively acidity. A natural for a fiery Phuket curry.

    Fresh and open-textured, with pretty pear, melon and floral aromas and flavors that linger on a light, off-dry frame. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.
