A lively bouquet of peaches, apricot, orange blossom and honeysuckle is immediately welcoming. On the palate, the flavors mirror the aroma, but the natural sweetness is balanced by a slight sparkle that gives the wine a light body and a crisp finish.

The Moscato vineyard sits at sea level providing fertile soil with an abundance of nutrients. We continuously manage both the nutrient and water levels to ensure the winegrapes develop strong flavors.
The heavy rains in December 2014 coupled with sporadic spring storms slightly eased the early season vine stress due to California’s ongoing drought conditions. Warm windy days and cooler than average nights in April and May led to slow crop development as well as small berry and cluster sizes. We did see warmer than average temperatures in June and typical July weather that resulted in an early, intense harvest with lower yields on average. The season began almost three weeks ahead of normal and was completed by the end of September. Throughout the season, we worked hard to keep up with the fast paced harvest to deliver winegrapes at the optimal time with our winemaking team loving the concentrated colors and fruit flavors.
