This is the first release from an important new boutique winery. Consulting winemaker Mike Januik was Ste. Michelle's white wine guru for many years; he now runs his own winery. The grapes, from Red Mountain's top site, are superb. A hint of sweetness makes this mouthfilling, fragrant, fruit-loaded wine immensely appealing.
