Fresh fruit aromas of orange blossom, lemon drop and grapefruit zest leap from the nose of this Fumé Blanc. On the palate, nectarine and fig flavors integrate with spicy vanilla oak and come to a well-balanced, crisp finish.

A great value, the 1999 Fumé Blanc includes 11% Sèmillon in the blend. Approximately 32% is barrel-fermented and the remainder is fermented in stainless steel. The wine does not see any malolactic, but is picked very ripe, which is obvious from the smoky, honeyed melon, passion fruit, and floral-scented bouquet. Medium-bodied, with gorgeous layers of fruit, it is meant to be consumed over the next 1-2 years.

Melon, vanilla, grass and ripe fig flavors turn fat, with a plush texture and very good concentration, accented by lemony acidity and harmonious toasty oak. Drink now.

A pleasant wine, with mild melon, mineral, citrus, peach and herb flavors. Light textured, medium bodied and quite refreshing. Clean on the finish.

The 2001 Fumé Blanc is a delicious, fragrant, floral, pungent, spicy, fruit-driven, light to medium-bodied effort that is full of character as well as pleasure. At the price, it's a steal.

Tangy, with lemon, orange, passion fruit and nectarine flavors lingering in the vanilla tones of the finish. Drink now.

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
