A special blend in honor of River Quinn Loring - the next generation of Loring. Wente clone. Barrel fermented and aged 10 months in 50% French oak (20% new) and 50% American oak (20% new). ·

Moderately light golden yellow color in the glass. Initial aromas of lemon, buttery brioche, floral blossoms and flint are appealing. Discretely rich flavors of lemon, pineapple, white peach are alluring. Nicely balanced in an easy-to-please exuberant style. I would be happy to have this as a daily drinker.

Wine EnthusiastThis whimsically labeled wine by Brian Loring offers great quality at a more affordable price. Aromas of hazelnut, cashew, seared marshmallow and light flint lead into a bold palate of poached apple, lemon curd and sweet oak.
