Created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is bold and intriguing. In establishing our own
spin on a white blend, winemaker Jen Beloz and her team sought out interesting Rhone and aromatic varietals that would nicely compliment a classic Chardonnay base. Through partnering with growers who are dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyards throughout California, the result is a wine that is complex and delicious.
Aromatic and inviting, the wine opens up with subtle notes of mandarin and meyer lemon zest, complimented on the palette
with delightful flavors of Anjou pear, roasted marshmallow, spiced apple tart and a hint of minerality. The finish is rich and creamy
with bright, balanced acidity.
Blend: 35% Chardonnay, 60% Rhone Whites of Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, & Grenache Blanc, 5% Aromatics of Semillon and Riesling.
"A distinctive combination of 35% Chardonnay, 20% Roussanne, 20% Viognier and small quantities of Riesling, Semillon, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc, the 2012 Blindfold is a sleeper of the vintage. Reminiscent of the Sine Qua Non whites from further south, it bursts with honeyed, caramelized white fruits, rose petals and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied with good acidity, brilliant purity and a delineation that is uncommon for a wine with so much flavor, this beauty should drink well for 2-3 years. I hope we see more blends such as this. "

short, he learned lessons that inform his vineyard selection process now.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
