Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Fume Blanc from Dry Creek displays a pleasant mild perfumed bouquet of green melon, banana, wet stone and fresh cut grass. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and crisp. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused Anjou pear with a hint of green apple and white pepper. The finish is dry and pleasant. This wine is food friendly and versatile. It would pair well with many foods. Baked Dover sole casserole came to mind first. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Fumé Blanc displays an aromatic symphony that leaves one pondering the truly magical characters of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal. The initial aromas fill the senses with a cacophony of pungent grassy, kaffir lime, citrus, white pepper and classic olive aromas. The palate is framed by refreshing citrus and mineral notes that mingle in wonderful harmony with Meyer lemon, Granny Smith apple and orange zest flavors.The grassy elements repeat on the finish with acidity that is both refreshing and brisk. This incredible new vintage is an ode to our founding and reminds us of how we got our start – a wine that is classically styled and immediately food friendly at an unbelievably fair price.
