Our Grandfather brought his family to California just in time for the 1963 Harvest. A half century later, we released 50 Harvests to commemorate this milestone and launch our next 50 years as a family owned and operated wine company. With the 2017 vintage, we added an elegant White Meritage Blanc to complete the 50 Harvests portfolio in the traditional Old-World style.
A pale golden straw color leads into an intriguing nose of wild honey, white floral and white peach notes. On the palate lemon and subtle herbs accent a stony minerality and nectarine flavors support the firm structure and pleasant mouthfeel. The brightness of the Sauvignon Blanc and continuing developing complexity of the Semillon completes the balanced expression of a classic medium full-bodied Bordeaux-style white blend. The overall sense of the palate is one of elegance and grace driven by the urge to enjoy another sip. Expect this wine to age like a red wine for more than a decade.
