Tasted this as part of a virtual wine tasting during the Covid 19 Shelter in Place Order.  These tastings are a fun and informative way to try some wines.  This is a blend of 23 different vineyards to make an affordably priced wine.  For those seeking a wine in this style, this offers a nice value.  it has a medium to deep gold color with some green swirls.  The nose has plenty of up front toasty oak along with a bit of lemon chiffon and a hint of baked apple.  On the palate, this has s very nice, slightly oily texture.  The palate is similar to the nose.  The oak is out front, but there is also a nice lemon/pear note.  Someone mentioned a sage quality, but I did not get that.  It has a long finish.  This is still young and will probably integrate a bit over the next few years.  It should drink well for the next five to seven years, at least, after that.  Pair this with roasted fowl or heartier sea food dishes.
