2017 White Experiment W4.7
As we have continued our exploration of the vast diversity that California has to offer, we find ourselves increasingly drawn to the cooler climates. These wines offer vibrancy, freshness and clean delineation that engage both our curiosity and our palate. In this pursuit, we have ventured to the far northern tip of Mendocino County—a wild and ruggedly beautiful place. It is from this verdant region that we found the newest contributors to the blend: Marsanne and Picpoul Blanc, varieties that bring sonorous white floral aromatics, lemon zest and vivacity.
These new elements add lift to the chorus of guava, cassis bud, pear, white peach, rosemary and brioche. Rich and lively on the palate, this wine is a graceful expression of imagination set free.
