    From the Winery:

    Arbios Cellars was founded in 1993 and the Praxis line was added in 2000. The word Praxis is derived from the Greek word for practice of a profession, such as law or medicine. All the wines of this label are 100% varietal wines.

    “The wine's color is pale straw with green highlights while the aroma carries citrus and light jasmine scents. Flavors of honeysuckle and stone fruit are accented with hints of vanilla, pear and guava,” Bill Arbios, owner and winemaker.

    Smells like "Spring": nice grass, soft florals on the nose.

    Has the body of a good Chardonnay. Praxis website says this is fermented in 100% stainless steel, but I swear I taste a subtle bit of oak. I liked it. (I'm more of a steel vs. oak fan myself, but a touch is nice.)

    Good balance of crispness and smoothness. Apple on the back of the tongue.

    Note on my rating: I rated this a high 4 when tasting it. But while writing this note up, I'm salivating thinking about the wine so... so I upgraded to a 5 and looking forward to trying this again.

    Color: Medium golden and canary yellow

    Nose: Huge and heavy florals here, maybe of the blossoms that produced the juicy big pear that's also present.

    Palate: Full and round, with bright pitted fruit, mainly of pear again, but also some peach, yellow apple and fruit blossom. Medium acidity to match the juicy round fruit and floral finish.
