Very pretty floral and stone fruit aromas waft up from the glass, with apple blossoms and pears showing the most. Similar flavors show on the palate, with the addition of Meyer lemon adding a citrus tang. Partial malolactic fermentation softens the palate and adds apple notes to the mid-palate. Acids are well balanced. This is a very nice wine, particularly for the price. Drink with fresh trout. Highly recommended.
