Jade Mountain White Blend Blend 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our White Blend is a unique, complex blend of white grapes, our winemaker’s pursuit of the perfect combination of flavors. This is a multidimensional, multisensory wine offering layer upon layer of aromas, textures and flavors. Look for inviting aromas of lemon-lime, tropical fruits, subtle white rose and orange blossom, with hints of butter, nutmeg and allspice. The generous palate is mouthfilling creaminess, boasting flavors of lemon curd, crisp green apple and other orchard fruits laced with light caramel and butter toffee notes. The finish is crisp and clean. Pair this wine with a wide variety of cuisines, from favorites from the South of France to spicy Indian and Asian dishes.

History Since 1988, Jade Mountain has been a pioneer in the production of age-worthy Rhône-style California wines. The winery was founded with the belief that carefully chosen California vineyard sites planted to Rhône grape varieties can achieve quality on-par with the best from the Rhône region in France. Jade Mountain creates world-class wines by pushing the limits of grape-growing and winemaking for the extract, flavor and richness that comes with the California sun and its individual expressions of Rhône varietals. Terroir Only a few locations in California have the perfect combination of soil and climate for growing world-class Syrah. Paras Vineyard sits at the 1,200-foot elevation on the eastern side of rocky Mount Veeder, overlooking the Napa Valley. The steep, terraced shale slopes are ideal for Syrah because of the cool, yet sun-drenched, climate and low-vigor soils. The vineyard is farmed terrace by terrace, with each row individually cared for. This same care is used at each of the vineyards from which we source grapes for Jade Mountain's wines. The grapes are picked by hand, then fermented in small lots to retain their unique character. All of these factors result in meager production, but high-quality wine Read less

I tried this on a whim off the wine list at Soba, a trendy pan-asian restaurant in Pittsburgh. It was a white blend of chardonnay, marsanne, pinot gris, malvasia, sauv blanc and viognier grapes. Because it was served extremely chilled, I couldn't smell much in the bouquet and couldn't taste much beyond the grape-y sweetness (very much like white grape juice cocktail). It was much too sugary for my liking. I was disappointed it wasn't better.
