    Excellent2013 VintageWashington PostDave McIntyreMarch 19, 2016

    Delightful. This is a blend of three white grapes from southern France: grenache blanc — which is trendy in California — plus marsanne and picpoul. Winemaker Paul Gregutt has crafted a wine combining exotic tropical fruit and the aromas of a secret garden on a cool summer evening. Try this with seafood salad, shrimp off the grill or even by itself.

    tasting notes

    This wine is aromatic, dry and detailed. The first impression in both nose and mouth is of lemon cream, perhaps due to a small percentage being aged in new barrels for a short period of time. White peach, pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon fruit flavors continue, with that same lovely creaminess in the mouth. The finish is long, crisp and persistent, with a light vein of mineral and metal. All in all this is a very fine addition to the Aromatics lineup, drinking well immediately but also suitable for aging over the next several years. It has the grip and structure of a fine French wine.
