Translucent gold color leads to notes of juicy ripe pineapple, jasmine, Kaffir lime and Juicy Fruit gum entice the nose. Balanced, yet vibrant body of acidity tantalizes the palate with pineapple, passion fruit and Charentais Melon; a refreshing layer of minerality hits your mid-palate. The elegant, floral finish opens into a complex balance of white peaches, nectarines.
The Lairds are a farming family in Napa Valley—Ken and Gail Laird established the winery in 1999 after 30 years of growing grapes for other wineries. The winery is in the heart of the Oak Knoll district on the west side of St. Helena Highway, near the Oak Knoll crossroad. Ken’s children, Justin and Rebecca, are integral to the family business. Justin manages the vineyards, which now have grown into the largest vineyard holdings in Napa Valley. Rebecca is the General Manager of the Winery—in addition to the small amount of Laird wines; the winery also produces wine for numerous fine boutique brands in Laird’s custom crush operation.
