This wine has one of those noses that almost makes you forget to take a drink. Aromas of orange blossoms, distant magnolia, and freshly-sliced pears all float up from the glass. Soft, round fruits lead on the palate, poached pears and mangos, with cut grass in the background. Pink and white grapefruit show up on the mid-palate and linger with sweet Meyer lemon. Drink with any white fish you caught yourself within the last 12 hours. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
