2017 Proprietary White Wine
This silky white wine is composed of a special French clone of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier from a small part of our Rutherford estate. The aromatics are driven by a captivating floral perfume of narcissus and oleander, leading to fresh-cut pineapple and guava with hints of white pear and fresh coconut. Focused on lush fruit and crisp acidity, this wine shows an enticing entry of ripe mango and white nectarine, layered beautifully with tones of custard, vanilla, and spiced cardamom. At the finish, the Viognier and a trace of oak bring a long-lasting, juicy finish with notes of mandarin orange zest.
