Named for producer Charlie Heintz' mother, who once cared for the family ranch and vineyard, this salty, herbal wine opens exquisitely in Key lime pie and orange blossom. A nutty afternote follows the first set of flavors, all around a core of balanced minerality and oak, finishing with a bite of graham cracker.
