Winemaker Notes

This Fumé Blanc is Sauvignon Blanc blended with a small amount of Semillon and Viognier. The components remained separate throughout the winemaking process and were blended together to add complexity to the final wine. The majority of the wine (74%) was tank fermented to retain the forward fruit flavors. The remaining 26% of the blend was barrel fermented in a combination of French (16%) and American oak (10%) and aged sur lie.

"Crisp and refreshing, this Fumé Blanc offers fragrant aromas of green tea, lemongrass and lemon meringue pie. Flavors of grapefruit, spice and wet stone combine with lively acidity, creating a beautifully balanced wine with a lingering lemon zest finish."
- Margo Van Staaveren, Winemaker

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
