Notes from the Winemaker:

About the wine:
In establishing our own spin on a white blend, winemaker Jen Beloz and her team sought out interesting Rhône and aromatic varietals that nicely compliment a classic Chardonnay base. Through partnering with growers dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyard sites, the result is a wine that is bold and intriguing.

Winemaker notes:
The wine opens up with alluring aromas of freshly peeled mandarin orange, peach nectar, and honeydew melon. Hints of white citrus blossom, marzipan and toasted hazelnut add a nice layer of complexity. On the palette, the wine has a rich creamy entry that is balanced by bright acidity and minerality. These characteristics carry through to the finish with flavors of lime zest and toasted marshmallow.

Chardonnay, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Semillon

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 vintage):
"The 2014 Proprietary White Blindfold is a cross-AVA blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne as well as a touch of Semillon. This wine is gorgeous, with oodles of rose petal, honeysuckle, melon and white peach notes in the aromatics and flavors. It is medium-bodied, quite complex, and best drunk over the next 1-2 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (29th Oct 2015)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2014 vintage):
"Rich and unctuous, a blend of toasted cedar, nutmeg, honeysuckle and vanilla bean notes, with a fleshy stone fruit core and toasted nut accents on the finish. Chardonnay, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now. 8,000 cases made." – MW (Web Only - 2016)
