  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (raised in 75% small French oak and 25% stainless steel): Light yellow. A pungent, strongly perfumed bouquet evokes grapefruit, quince, vanilla and fresh flowers. Offers an array of spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors, with herb and floral nuances adding complexity. Chewy and energetic, with powerful finishing cut, an echo of vanilla and very good length. This potent wine, made from 83% sauvignon blanc, 12% sauvignon gris and 3% sauvignon musque, would work extremely well with Thai or Vietnamese fish preparations.

  • Intense, balanced, and distinctive wines are produced from this sustainably farmed estate, now owned by Bill Foley. The Chalk Hill AVA, located between Russian River and Alexander Valley, is at a higher elevation than both valleys, with leaner soils. Here, winemaker Lisa Bishop Forbes uses a minimalist approach in crafting Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and red blends that have been benchmarks of the appellation for three decades.
