Winemaker Tasting Notes
Aromas of peach, white nectarine and meyer lemon. The palate is round and indulgent with notes of pear, mandarin and quince. The mouthfeel is creamy and soft with an enduring finish.

Tendril wines are made “low and slow,” just like great food: we give them time to reach their full potential at the winery, aging 16 months minimum in barrel and 6-18 months more in bottle before release. If you prefer aging, 3-5 years from vintage date is ideal for Pretender. Serve chilled at 50-55F or after 30 minutes in the fridge.
