Lot 822 opens with an elegant nose of jasmine, pear, melon, and apple blossoms. The entry is all beeswax and grapefruit opening over soft acidity, carried by great palate weight and a touch of spice before transitioning into a clean finish of additional blossoms and delicate minerality that demands another sip. Delicious.

This wine comes to us from a Rutherford estate surrounded in every direction by some of the most legendary names in the valley (and is quite decorated in its own right). Helmed by a winemaker with almost 40 years crafting Napa Valley Bordelaise varietals under their belt, the focus here is on making a small handful of wines each year extremely well, and the top-class quality is clearly evident – the fact that white florals and beeswax notes are found in abundance without any Semillon blending at all is a testament to the skill on display, and reveals how much of this grape’s character can be discovered using great fruit from great vines without any blending as long as you have the right soil and the right hands. A sublime Napa Valley expression and a graceful counterpart to White Bordeaux.
