Grgich Hills Estate Grown Napa Valley Fume Blanc 93w&s 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Farmed under Biodynamics at Grgich’s American Canyon and Carneros estate vineyards, this wine has the intensity of flavor that fruit can give at the peak of ripeness. The depth of that fruit flavor ranges from tart pear skin to kumquat, both brisk and resonant. Its underlying earthiness parallels the structure of a classic Loire chenin; a sauvignon that’s refreshing with river fish and big enough for foie gras...93" Wine & Spirits 02/12 "Bright, pale yellow. Bracing, slightly raw aromas of lemon peel, grapefruit and pepper. Then surprisingly supple following the nose, with a dense, tactile lemony flavor intensified by sound acidity. Vibrant, very dry and delicate sauvignon blanc with excellent length...90" IWC 06/12
