This 80-hectare estate was founded in 1978 when Gary Andrus planted the property's original vineyard in Stags Leap on a terraced hillside flanked by a ridge of pine trees. They now have vineyards across five sub-zones in Napa: four in the Stags Leap District, three in Rutherford, three in Carneros and one each in Howell Mountain and Oakville. This diversity gives winemaker Michael Beaulac many different blending options from which to choose each year, the results of which can be seen in the stunningly high quality of the wines they produce.
Crisp, bright and lively, this wine boasts a bouquet of pink grapefruit, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and jasmine. On the palate, there are ripe fruit flavours of tangerine, green apple, white peach and lime curd alongside more herbal notes of lemongrass and ginger. It is medium-bodied, with refreshing acidity and a hint of minerality on the long, round finish.
