Their wines are always very popular and we field plenty of Operative requests for more. Tropical fruits abound on the nose of this very aromatic wine. Aromas of pineapple, guava, pink grapefruit, lemon, white tea, dried hay, white peach, subtle cut grass and slate mineral. Tropical flavors explode onto the palate, with pineapple, guava, mango, lemongrass, lime leaf, yellow grapefruit, green apple, Asian pear and a hint of white spice.

Winemaker Tom Rees Growing up in the mid-west, Tom caught the wine bug while working at Kahn’s Fine Wines in Indianapolis as he pursed his Chemistry degree at Purdue University. His first job in wine production was as an intern wine chemist at Charles Krug Winery in 2002. As the Krug internship concluded, Tom accepted a position as the Winemaking Technical Manager at St. Supéry Vineyards, which eventually paved a path to the Assistant Winemaker position. After six very enjoyable years at St. Supéry, Tom was ready for a new challenge and moved on to Rombauer Vineyards, as the Associate Winemaker. Tom also represents AEB Biochemical, works as a consulting winemaker for other small Napa Valley wineries, and serves as the Secretary for the California Enological Research Association.
About The Wine SpiesAbout The Wine SpiesAlcohol SalesRestricted StatesTitle and OwnershipShipping & HandlingAbout The Wine SpiesCovert greetings! We've been spying great wines - and selling them online - since 2007. That makes us one of the oldest and most trusted names in the online wine trade. Here on eBay we sell six carefully curated wines each and every week. These wines are carefully selected by a tasting panel of industry veterans, which include our own Wine Spies 'agents'. Our constant refrain is, "If we don't love a wine, we won't feature it as one of our curated wines!" We work directly with wineries and importers, so our price to you is the best that it can be for quality wines. Working direct also means that your wine has been trucked around a minimal number of times. Wine is sensitive stuff, and we take great care of your wine - until it reaches your door. We offer free upgrades to temperature controlled shipping, and ice packs (for an additional fee) in the summer months if you'd like an extra measure of protection.
