Yellow straw color. Interesting, toasty aromas and flavors of oiled leather, mesquite, grilled nectarines and apples, and cedar pencil shavings with a supple, soft, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, captivating, brisk finish that presents overtones of smoked nuts and creme brulee crust with fine, chewy, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. An intriguing, lightly smoky and woodsy white blend for the table.

While white varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling are very important throughout wine regions in the US, there are numerous others planted in various zones. In California, Italian varieties such as Pinot Grigio and Arneis can be found, while producers in Santa Barbara and Paso Robles work with white Rhone varieties such as Marsanne and Viognier.

New York State works with hybrid grapes, both French and American. Among these are Cayuga, Seyval Blanc and Vignoles. This last grape is also grown in various Midwest states such as Missouri, Indiana and Illinois.
