    Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

    This Fume Blanc is Sauvignon Blanc blended with a small amount of Semillon and Viognier. The vineyards for this wine were selected from Knights Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. The fruit from these regions gives the wine the ripe melon, citrus and fig flavors to achieve a blend with a balance of fruit and herbal spice characters.

    "This lively and refreshing Fume Blanc offers bright aromas of grapefruit, melon and lemongrass. The Semillon contributes a hint of sweet red apple that combines with the vibrant citrus, fig and spice characters found on the palate, creating a beautifully balanced wine with a long, lingering finish."
    -Margo Van Staaveren, Winemaker

    "A textural delight, with fresh, vibrant white peach, melon and lemon-lime citrus flavors that are fragrant, fleshy and rich, with a whiff of fresh-cut grass and juicy acidity. The flavors echo on the long finish."
