Blindfold White Blend
They thought if he couldn’t see the world, then he wouldn’t make his mark. But a blindfold won’t hold him back. It just heightens his other senses. And whether they like it or not, his resilience will leave a lasting impression.
Chardonnay blended with white Rhône and aromatic varieties, equally bold and intriguing—a luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin is balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar.
No. 39007 Chenin Blanc
№ 39007 is anonymous, part of a sequence, yet still, without them, the system would crumble. The same holds true for the varietal lots in our Chenin Blanc—each quietly in its place, an integral part of the whole. For № 39007, we combined Chenin Blanc from Mendocino's Norgard Vineyard, located on the Talmage Bench just east of the Russian River, with a touch of Viognier from Rodgers Vineyard in Napa Valley's Oak Knoll region.
Honey, ripe peach, cantaloupe, golden delicious apple, and floral notes on the nose. Velvety, smooth, full bodied with balanced acidity, bright pineapple, and a lingering finish.
The Snitch Chardonnay
There's something abouyt him you just can't place. He's not a person you would cross. You have this suspicion that he knows more than he's letting on. That he has a depth he's not disclosing, a past, layers hidden by layers. He's listening, that much you can tell. Everything beyond that is a mystery. Words disappear into him like light into pitch black. Still, you're intrigued. Still, you keep talking. You talk, and he listens. And you and he both know that every word could be the one that unravels you.
When creating our wines, we always look for fresh approaches to traditional varietals. For The Snitch, we combined Chardonnay from exceptional vineyards in warm Oak Knoll and cool-climate Carneros with just a touch of Roussanne. The result is bright and rich with an unexpected something special.
Fresh tropical fruit, apple, and pear on the nose. The palate offers richness balanced by bright acidity.
