Tasting Notes:
"My first taste of Musqué clone grapes was with Larry Hyde in the early 80’s when I visited his vineyard with my father. Exceptionally flavorful and aromatic we planted just under two acres of it at our Church Vineyard estate in Carneros in 2003. Seventeen years later, the 2020 vintage is expressive with mango, orange stone fruit and sweet spice fragrances. Cantaloupe, cherimoya and Meyer lemon are broad on the palate with hints of tarragon and nougat. The delicate crème on the palate persists through noted minerality and a bright, acidic lift."
