About This Wine

Color: deep yellow gold with touches of orange and grey on the rim

On the nose: orange blossom, apricot, honey and white chocolate with tarragon, fresh cut grass and walnuts evolving on white truffle and brioche 

On the palate: round, soft entrance evolving on a fresh backbone of acidity with touches of beeswax, apricot and mango, lingering on quinine and star fruit

Wine Profile

Blend: Sauvignon Blanc 55%, Semillon 45%

Vinatge Notes:

2010 was a very cool vintage with high levels of acidity which protect fragile aromas and give a great backbone to the wine. The growing season allowed the aromatics to be a little less ripe and more subtle and fresh because at no time was the grape burned by heat. The consequences are a well balanced wine with lower alcohol levels imparting components of all that is great about the Napa Valley terroir. 
There were a few early rains in October that stared botrytis on white varietals. We had to wait until December for this noble rot to establish itself at a high enough percentage where it dehydrated the berry and concentrated with sugar.
