Though it is listed at 14.2% alcohol, this is a pretty wine, with feminine grace rather than masculine muscle. Floral and fresh, it smells like fresh lemons and white peaches and flavors follow right along in that same vein. Balanced and polished, it shows exemplary winemaking skills on the part of Jonathan Scott Oberlander.
