Straw color. Earthy aromas and flavors of butter roasted nuts, dried fruits, vanilla Greek yogurt, and mossy earth with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a polished, relaxed lemon curd finish with crunchy, fruit tannins. An earthy white for the table.

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.
