Winemaker Notes

The estate-grown Viognier and Muscat Canelli provide beautiful fruit and floral expressions. A rich and full palate provided by our estate Chardonnay and Semillon enhanced by the wonderful natural acidity of our Sauvignon Blanc.

Blend: 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon, 30% Chardonnay, 7% Viognier and 3% Muscat Canelli.

TP 93
Tasting Panel
Only 165 barrels are made to produce one of our fave white wine blends -- this vintage proves itself exotic, crisp, and floral with notes of pineapple, Asian pear, and orange blossom. Mid-palate savory herbs flow in: basil and taragon, with toasty oak, nutmeg, and creamy vanilla. The mineral-driven textural mouthfeel is a bright finish. The 30% Sauvignon Blanc offers a wonderful acidity with 30% Semillon and 30% Chardonnay for texture. Viognier (7%) and Muscat Canelli (3%) add aromatics. The fruit is sourced from the winery's estate vineyards.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Fragrant, with peach blossom and honeyed notes of baked apple that are rich and unctuous. The core of citrus and apple flavors is juicy and crisp, finishing with an appealing spicy accent. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Crisp apple and grapefruit notes dominate the aromas and flavors of this medium-bodied wine, giving it a tangy mouthwatering aspect that suggests pairing with seafood, mild cheeses and the like. More fruit comes out with time in the glass, fading to delicious apricot on he finish.

A warm sub-appellation of the greater San Francisco Bay AVA (American Viticultural Area), Livermore Valley mainly hides behind the shielding effects of the bay’s eastern hills. However, late afternoon winds cool down summer nights as daytime heat rises from the Central Valley in the east, pulling the cold, foggy, bay air inland. This cooler evening air permeates the Livermore Valley's foothills, making this an ideal environment for the development of phenolic ripeness and concentration in its wine grapes.

The Livermore Valley is one of California's oldest wine regions and has played a crucial role in shaping California's wine industry. Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes in the Livermore Valley in the 1760s. Then in the mid 1800s, a man named Robert Livermore planted the area’s first commercial vineyards. Winemaker pioneer C. H. Wente arrived a few years later; today the Wente Chardonnay clone is the source of a majority of California Chardonnay. Furthermore, James Concannon and the Wetmore brothers recognized the virtues of the area’s Bordeaux-like gravel soils and dedicated themselves to making high quality wine from Bordeaux varieties. Today the area is also known for high quality Petite Sirah.

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended white wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
