Description

This tiny 80 case production is a more-or-less equal blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat and Grenache, all from the Napa Valley. The Sauvignon Blanc was a classic Napa Valley SB - full of grass and mineral notes. The Muscat was very light in character. I had harvested the Muscat quite early as I wanted to make a Vino Verde style wine. The fruit was extremely clean and delicate with a very high acidity in the mouth. The Grenache was whole-cluster pressed. All three lots were fermented very cold at about 50 degrees in stainless barrels. Once the wines had finished, I blended them together and got quite the surprise---the sum equaled way more than the parts. The grassy SB, fruity Muscat and the big bold full-of-mouthfeel Grenache perfectly complemented each other...and thus an unlikely blend was made. This is without a question my favorite white of the last 10 years. I certainly wish that there were more than 80 cases of it. - Kent Rasmussen
