A blend of four white grapes, including Albariño; this is an unconventional wine made in small quantities. Starts with cinnamon and anise aromas that morph toward curry. Plenty of full-bodied spiced pear and banana flavors in the center. Unlike most everything else; could even be better in a cooler vintage like the upcoming 2004.
