First made for the historic summits between Reagan and Gorbachev in 1985, this blend of 69% Pinot Noir and 31% Chardonnay marks the 30th anniversary of that event. Made in a Brut style, it's nonetheless among the winery's most richly opulent concoctions. Lemon bar and vanilla form around a medium build with notes of nutmeg and baked apple, finishing in an intensity of lemon zest.
