Pale gold color with green-gold highlights, rich aromas of beeswax, lavender, quince and cardamom lead to a mouthful of Asian pear, quince and wild fennel with a distinctive note of minerals on the mid-palate. Silky in texture and perfectly
balanced, the 2008 Le Cigare Blanc has a long, savory, satisfying finish. Its unique flavors will pair exceptionally well with fresh swordfish, lobster and roast turkey.
"Grahm has come through with a strong blend of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc with his 2008 Le Cigare Blanc from the Beeswax Vineyard. Crisp honeysuckle, nectarine, and mango notes are present in this elegant, medium-bodied, richly fruity, fresh, lively wine, which should have lots of flexibility with food and drink well for 1-2 years. "
The Wine Advocate
"($22; 57% roussanne and 43% grenache blanc, all biodynamically grown) Light, bright yellow. Fresh pear, nectarine and white peach on the nose, with a hint of lemon curd adding lift. Supple and expansive, offering lively orchard fruit flavors and a seamless texture. A touch of smokiness lingers on the sappy finish. Drinks well now but I'd be interested to see this in a couple of years."
