Fumé Blanc Reserve 2012

The 2012 vintage is a classic for Napa Valley and an excellent one for white wines. Following two cooler and wetter growing seasons, Vineyard Manager, Matt Ashby, calls 2012 a “walk in the park.” A dry winter led to well-timed rain in March to saturate the soils and help fill the reservoirs. Warm days and cool nights endured through the growing season creating the perfect recipe for long, flavor-building hang time and optimal sugar to acid balance. Our harvest began just before the Labor Day weekend and as we moved from block to block picking, we marveled at the exceptionally fragrant, flavorful fruit coming from this classic vintage. A wave of concentrated stone fruit flavors fold into lemon citrus, white floral, herb, minerality and an intriguing savoriness as the wine rides across the palate. Its focused flavors, complexity, and long finish perfectly express the rare, old-vine Sauvignon Blanc of To Kalon.

We are not white wine drinkers so that was already a strike against it . Overwhelmingly a taste of dusty peach too much for our palate.
