Golden-straw colour. White flowers, pear and grapefruit on the nose.
In the mouth, tropical fruit notes of mango and pineapple with silky mid-palate suggesting lemon custard lightly drizzled atop lightly toasted brioche. With a delicate acidity that lends a refreshing minerality, the wine is barrel-fermented and aged 19 months in 39% new French (Burgundian) oak, resulting in a pleasing plushness that rounds to a complete, satisfying finish.
The mild spring and cooler summer in Monterey County give a chance of our Pinot Noir grapes to achieve the optimum maturity with great balance of acidity and flavor, and with deep color that is characteristic of Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balance by the French toasted oak aromas. Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel
Exclusive to Butlers. Rich aromas of tropical fruit, spice, vanilla and cream. Silky, dry and vibrant. A crunchy texture, tropical fruit, a mineral texture with a long finish. The balance is perfect!
