60% Semillon 19% Sauvignon 21% Muscadelle Columbia Valley 13.8% $24 Very tight and reticent on the nose. Rather rich on entry and supple with a gorgeous mouthfeel and slow to emerge flavors of melon, fig, a touch of vanilla, and dried white flowers wrapped in subtle pie crust notes. The finish shows a whisper of tannin, well integrated but supportive acids and good length. This needs time to develop. Right now it’s all about balance and potential, but a few years in the cellar will reveal much more. 87pts

This is the best white wine I have had from Washington state. The wine has multiple layers and a dual finish of tart and spicy. The muscadelle adds bouquet and a trace of sweetness and melon to an otherwise dry wine. The wine uses Malborough, NZ, CO2 fermenting techniques. Tanzer rates this a 90 wine, and Wine Enthusiast goes with 95. A Seattle wine magazine calls this Washington's top white bordeaux blend. Buty says the wine should age well.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sémillon dominates our classic white blend. The sand, silt-loam filled soils and cooler temperatures of Spring Creek Vineyard in the Yakima Valley nurture our sauvignon bringing bright acidity to the blend. Muscadelle from Lonesome Spring River Ranch is responsible for the florals in this verve-filled wine. A portion of the wine is lees aged in mature oak and the balance aged in a concrete tank.The picture perfect 2012 vintage has yielded a wine with mouthfilling richness, alluring aromatics and abundant varietal character. Golden fig, apricot and peach notes from the sémillon combine with the sauvignon’s key lime, gooseberry and lemongrass notes and the muscadelle’s expressive floral aromas to create a complete and compelling whole. Lovely minerality, and enlivening acidity underscore the lush fruit, while adding dimension to the smooth, silky mouthfeel. Beautiful now, but also a true cellar-worthy white." -Winery
