For starters, it's hard to find a better Sauvignon Blanc for the price that the 2004 Fumé Blanc. Offering loads of floral, herbal, melon, and fig notes, it is an elegant, medium-bodied, pure, fruity Fumé to drink over the next 1-2 years.

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. Drink now.

Pear, peach, nectarine and apricot flavors are vibrant and fresh, with lovely juicy acidity and a pretty floral note that echoes on the long finish, where the fruit flavors turn toward the tropical side. Drink now.

This Fumé Blanc is bright and fresh. Showing notes of grapefruit, lemongrass, and jasmine, this wine will pair well with grilled chicken and seafood dishes.

You get a big mouthful of wine for the price of this crisp, fruity white. It's bright and zesty in acidity, with balanced citrus, fig, melon and spice flavors, and the finish is long and rich.

Crisp and refreshing, this Fumé offers fragrant aromas of green tea, lemongrass and lemon meringue pie. Flavors of grapefruit, spice and wet stone combine with lively acidity, creating a beautifully balanced wine with a lingering lemon zest finish.

The 2003 Fumé Blanc is a steal. A medium-bodied, floral, spicy, crisp white with loads of character, it will be flexible with an assortment of culinary dishes. Enjoy it over the next 12-18 months.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This easy drinking Fum Blanc explodes with bright, fresh fruit aromas of citrus, ripe melon, peach and dried herbs. A crisp entry leads into flavors of nectarine, tarragon and lemon zest integrated with spicy vanilla oak and comes to a well-balanced refreshing finish.

Tasting Notes:

This wine is dry, with a mid-level of acidity. The nose offers primary flavor notes of mandarin orange, lime, a little flint, tangerine, and a deep aura of rose. A number of tropical fruit flavor notes poke out from beneath these primary flavors: melon, pineapple and even a touch of banana
