The 2010 vintage Gemini is a blend of 73% Semillon and 27% Sauvignon blanc. All grapes were harvested on Sept. 20 and co-fermented (together in the same tank). The wine was barrel aged sur lie with 20% new French oak to enhance the aromatics and fullness of flavor that is evident in the finished wine. This vintage's rendition smells of ripe pineapple and subtle French oak. Overall the lasting impression is a wine of elegance, quality, and balance but doesn't fall into the paradigm of most California white wines.
