    ($60; a blend of 64% semillon, 34% sauvignon blanc and 2% muscadelle) Bright medium yellow. Knockout nose combines lemon zest and oil, licorice, lichee, honey and lanolin, with a floral honeysuckle quality emerging with air. Lush and sweet but firmly built, with terrific energy to the citrus oil and orange blossom flavors. As dry as this is, its richness gives it an almost sweet impression. Wonderfully seamless and fascinating white blend with a youthful, almost tannic finish. This will take on deeper apricot and quince flavors with bottle aging. The semillon used for this blend comes from 35- and 50-year-old plantings, according to Morlet.

    One of the most profound blends of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and in this case, 2% Muscadelle, is the 2007 La Proportion Doree (64% Semillon, 34% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle). An extraordinary nose of waxy, honeyed grapefruit, melons, figs, and quince is superb. In the mouth, a liqueur of rocks intermixed with quinine, quince, and waxy notes continues to cascade over the palate. This is a sensational, dry, incredibly complex wine that shows the potential that blends such as this can achieve.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
