Well now I am in heaven! This honey colored nectar is the closest I have found to the Bordeaux Blanc that really spiked my wine interest. I was a bit concerned because when I went to the winery on Saturday, I tasted some really old Chards that were not my thing at all and I was not sure if their style of wine making was something I would understand but I took a chance on 3 bottles of Semillon, 2 1995 Cab Francs, and a odd Zin with some 2% residual sugar.
The Semillon is deep and almost thick in the mouth and a grapefruit in honey taste. I am clearing out some room in my small cellar to try an stuff a case or 2.
Valerie and Dexter, the sweet octogenarians owners, are true California characters and I look forward to helping them empty their cellar.
