2018 Blanc de Noir
On the nose, lemon pithe, golden russet apple, kumquat, sea breeze, and dried apricots. This wine has a lovely tight bead and has a rich and creamy mouthfeel with notes of vanilla wafer and cashew nut. The palate is very flashy and up front, while maintaining freshness and is an overall pleasing example of a blanc de noir.
This wine sings with notes of honeycomb, baked apple strudel, vanilla creme brûlée, poached pear, and graham cracker. Many of these aromas carry into the palate, which is full bodied and creamy, while still retaining fresh acidity and verve. This is the perfect white wine for a California winter’s night. Fresh fruit and acid balance the warming tones of oak and baking spices. A classic California Chardonnay.
On the nose, bright red candied fruits, strawberry shrub, medjool dates, blueberries, and dried apricots are countered by aromas of tobacco pouch and licorice root. These scents translate into flavors of hard red candy, juicy purple plum, and umami characters of candied bacon and toasted walnut on the palate. Gentle tannins which are ripe and spicy balance out the round, plush personality of this wine.
