Bright medium straw green color. Bright, toasty aromas and flavors of baked nectarine and pineapple, roasted coconut, nougat, and hint of rubber with a glycerous, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and a warming, refreshing, brisk finish that presents shades of creme brulee, roasted nuts, toasted oak, and pepper with crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A warming, oak-forward white Rhone blend.

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.
