Silvery emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of peach scone, cashew butter, asian pear, and dried citrus with a silky, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy lemon-spritzed melon rind, baked apple, and almond skin finish with fine, dusty, fruit tannins and no oak. A nice dry Pinot Blanc.

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Pinot Blanc is a white wine, made from the eponymous grape; top examples are produced in California, France and Germany. Sometimes referred to as a "poor man's Chardonnay," Pinot Blanc has flavors of apple and pear and is quite dry; some are made in steel tanks, while more full-bodied versions are aged in oak.

Enjoy these wines upon release and over their first three to five years; pair them with most seafood or lighter poultry dishes.
