Tasting Notes: The 2019 Wild Bee welcomes you with aromas of delicate white rose petals, ripe Asian pears, and vanilla-spiced almonds. Impressions of tangy key-lime pie with a subtle graham cracker crust balance on the palate alongside hints of honeysuckle and ripe papaya. An electric, mouthwatering finish slowly recedes, revealing a touch of sea salt along with a gentle kiss of crème fraiche.
