J. Schram, North Coast – 2005
The 2005 J. Schram shows classic characteristics of a very cool vintage. The aroma is fresh and bright with green apple, ripe grapefruit and pineapple followed by nuances of lemon custard, creme brûlée and toasted hazelnut. White peach and crisp citrus flavors are carried with accents of tart pear and apple. The palate is furthered layered with sweet, spicy flavors of candied ginger and lemon curd. The texture is both viscous and mouthwatering, and the wine finishes with a long, lingering acidity.
