2017 № 39007
CALIFORNIA CHENIN BLANC Chenin Blanc blended with a touch of Viognier
№ 39007 is anonymous, part of a sequence, yet still, without them, the system would crumble. The same holds true for the varietal lots in our Chenin Blanc—each quietly in its place, an integral part of the whole. For № 39007, we combined Chenin Blanc from Mendocino’s Norgard Vineyard, located on the Talmage Bench just east of the Russian River, with a touch of Viognier from Rodgers Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll region.
Honey, ripe peach, cantaloupe, golden delicious apple, and floral notes on the nose. Velvety, smooth, full bodied with balanced acidity, bright pineapple, and a lingering finish.
