Our 2002 Reserve Fume is a harmonious marriage of Sauvignon Blanc from Alexander Valley (89%) and Russian River Valley (11%)." The floral Sauvignon Musque clone, grown in our estate vineyards, comprised 29% of the fruit." Winemaker David Ready Jr. barrel fermented 89% of the wine, and a small portion (17%) underwent malolactic fermentation." The Reserve Fume rested in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 8 1/2 months prior to bottling." This wine demonstrates bright flavors of citrus, pear and melon with a elegant, rich finish.
