Pug Blanc By Pug Wine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Pug Blanc Saralee's Vineyard ~ Russian River Valley Pug Blanc is complex and full bodied, exhibiting elegant flavors of butterscotch, lemon, and kiwi with hints of applewood and pepper on the finish. Located two hours north of San Francisco, Saralee's Vineyard produces a small amount of cool climate marsanne and roussanne. These Rhone varietals were planted in 2002 in sandy loamed soil with only four feet between the vines. Extensive water channels and drain works and aggressive viticulture practices result in small yields and superior quality fruit. 2005 Pug Blanc was aged for 12 months in French Oak.

Pug Wine was founded to create small lots of handcrafted ultra premium, single vineyard wines from California's best grape growig regions. We believe there is no reason to make wine from anything other than great fruit harvested at its peak. Since its inaugural releases, Pug Wine has featured on two Sonoma County vineyards - Pug Pinot from Amber Ridge Vineyard and Pug Blanc, a Rhone style blend of marsanne and roussanne, from Saralee's Vineyard. These "cool climate" varietals reflect the unique soils and climate of the Russian River Valley. Each of these wines are handcrafted in very small lots and aged in French oak at the winery to produce wine that is well structured and vibrant in character. In 2009, Pug Wine released its first Cabernet, Pug Cab. It was made from grapes grown in Napa County's Oakville region harvested in 2007. Great Cabernet comes from Napa County and this one is spectacular. Read less
