On the nose, the wine has a bouquet of honey, hints of popcorn and jasmine spice.
On the palate, the medium body wine has fruit flavors of pear and apple with hints of pie crust and crumble topping.
The finish hits with spice, brown sugar and granny smith cobbler. Pairs nicely with poultry, white sauces, steamed artichokes, clams, crab cakes and brie cheeses.
