Spann Vineyards Chardonnay Blend North Coast Betsy's Backacher Bottle Blond 2006

Member Review by drdebs:

WOW! this was fantastic, and a real contender for all around house white with its blend of viognier, semillon, and chardonnay. Depending on what you have it with, it picks out different nuances in the wine. Nose is very much semillon/chardonnay with aromas of yellow apple, pear, and a touch of peach from the viognier. Palate is soft and round with flavors of white nectarine, peach, and apple. Juicy finish. Terrific value, and very versatile. We had with jerk-marinated grilled tuna with mango and it behaved like a gewurz. Very, very interesting wine.

Spann Vineyards:
Nestled among the majestic coastal redwoods of the Mayacamas Mountains, our steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. From this and select cool-climate vineyards throughout Sonoma County we craft limited quantities of European-style blended wines, strongly influenced by Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and Tuscany.
