long honied/candied soft/ripe/lush perfumed/floral/carnations finish; has the softness of the Campania versions
but not the stony/earthy character of them; seems riper than last yrs and more like a GrenacheBlanc; quite an
attractive/ripe white. $25.00

Doesn't seem to have changed a whole lot over the intervening 5 yrs and retaining a lot of its beautiful aromatics.
Alas, after the '13 vnyd; this vnyd was paved over for a housing development.
