Golden straw bright, aromas of mandarin orange, pear and banana; bright flavor notes of tropical citrus, melon, pineapple and a kiss of flint, balanced with moderate acidity and a medium finish.

2009 : Citrus flavors, slight dryness, adding a white pepper follow through, crisp. Not very impress less then expected; average to that of a $5.00 - $7.00 bottle with slightly higher price tag; in a nut shell? Average 80!

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.

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.

Made in a smoky style style, with peach, apricot and citrus flavors infused with cedary, toasty, tobacco campfire notes. Well-balanced and wonderfully fleshy and juicy, especially on the finish. Drink now through 2012.

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.

A killer value, the 2006 Fume Blanc exhibits beautiful melony, honeysuckle, and orange-zest aromas offered in a crisp, dry, light to medium-bodied, tasty personality. Enjoy it over the next 12-18 months.

Distinctive for its vibrant lemon curd, herb, citrus and toasty vanilla flavors that linger in the background, finishing with a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now.

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.
