Winemaker Notes

Blancaneaux shows an intricate array of aromas, ranging from attractive floral scents of jasmine and acacia to fruitiness in the form of white peach and ripe Meyer lemon zest. While its structure is round and medium-bodied, the wine retains compelling freshness as it evolves throughout an extended finish.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
The winery's signature white blends 38% Viognier, 38% Marsanne and 24% Roussanne into a cohesive whole, aging the wine in stainless steel as well as French oak. Bright layers of lemon peel and tangerine meet grippy acidity and length, with an appealing creaminess to the finish.
JS 92
James Suckling

Aromas of lemon curd, dried flowers, apricot and toast on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tangy acidity and a waxy texture. Almonds, waxed lemon and stones on the finish. Viognier, marsanne and roussanne. Drink now.

D 92
Decanter
An unusual blend in Napa, with honeycomb edging against savoury lemon and soft white pepper spicing, opening up to show a richer apricot seam touched with grilled almonds that become even more evident on the finish. Enjoyable and unusual. The vines are planted in the higher, cooler parts of the Inglenook vineyard to keep acidities fresh. First vintage with Diam corks. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030
WS 90
Wine Spectator
There's a wonderful sense of polish and structure here, with fleshy peach and apricot flavors at the core amid toasty overtones. But notes of fresh herbs and hops lend a green thread, and powerful, crisp lemony notes gain momentum on the finish. Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.

Inglenook, California
Inglenook Chateau in Spring Winery Image
In 1879, Finnish explorer and adventurer Gustave Niebaum searched the Napa Valley with the goal of establishing a wine estate to rival the finest chateau of France. For decades his wines won acclaim and remain some of the most admired in American wine history's classic period. By the mid-1960's, his property was divided, and estate-wine production ceased.

A decade later, Francis Ford Coppola purchased 1,500 acres of this historic property and revived Captain Niebaum's fine winemaking tradition. In 1995, Niebaum-Coppola acquired the remainder of the property and restored the Inglenook Estate to its original dimensions.

Rutherford Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
