Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of coconut vanilla ice cream, vanilla frosting, cake batter, and white flowers with a glycerous, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, medium-length finish revealing suggestions of coconut, vanilla, heavy cream, and lemon curd on brown buttered corn bread with heavy oak flavor. Coconut cream and loads of barrel flavor with some essence of white wine.

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.
