Wine Details

Gorgeous aromatics right out of the glass, with notes of white flower, citrus, mango, and papaya. On the palate, a mingling of grapefruit, orange zest, and other citrus flavors lay in the fore. Maybe the best non-Chardonnay white wine we’re ever released. This is a wine with length and viscosity, and definitely has some aging capability here. The time in barrel has given it structure and time to mellow out the acidity.

Cam Confidential

Lot 478 is a blend of 79% Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc and 21% Alexander Valley Old Vine Semillon from high elevation vineyard fruit, produced by a very famous consulting winemaker and aged in French barrels for 14 months. It’s gorgeous wine, and a terrific follow-up to those of you who liked Lot 437. How did we get our hands on it? While the actual brand owner was mum on the topic, judging from the fact they are still selling 2012, I suspect they’re simply backed up on inventory. With the original retail at $50, this is a crazy deal at $15, and one of the best whites we have ever released.

Nice profile on this blend! Complex, citrus and fruit that lingers. This is a classy porch pounding masterpiece. Balanced and interesting on the palette. Nice job!

This is a fabulous blend that has grapefruit and citrus notes from the SB but the semillon adds complexity and mouthfeel to make this a classy fuller white that doesnt disappoint. One of my favorite blends! thanks

Uncorked this baby last week to have with a grilled london broil and baked potato. We both really enjoyed it. Not heavy, like a chard, but not light, like a sauv blanc. It was just right and all of a sudden its contents disappeared:) A great value--too bad it's gone. I would have loved to order more.

Strong grapefruit notes and mineral finish. Very clean tasting. Went well with herbed chicken. The vegan in the group applauded its affinity for roasted mushrooms,potatoes, cherry tomatoes and onions. Note worthy. Very good value.

Love the Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blend and this is a super wine. Good acidity and long dry finish - works with so many foods.

This particular blend can be so hit-or-miss but I took a chance and I am quite happy I did. The citrus and tropical fruit in the mix complement so well - I'm even tasting a hint of my favorite in SB - guava. The finish is never thin and bright acidity gives just the right balance. Another winner!

This wine is quite good. Perfect for the coming warmer months.

We bought a single bottle of this white with a red order and opened it over the weekend. Wow! We both thought this was a great summer wine and great with chicken or fish. We are coming back for more.
