We happened to have two very geek whites to try in one day. We brined, seasoned and rottisierised a turkey breast, sliced some cheeses and then set out to see what they are all about. The results are below ( 2 wines). Rex and Michele
2012 Lo and Behold Napa White Blend (less than 100 cases produced)
The Lo and Behold project is one in which six acclaimed Napa winemakers came together under one label. They were given virtually unlimited resources. They had access to the best grapes, the best barrels and best facilities with which to create wines of their particular vision. They did not make much. less that 100 cases per vision. Cult winemaker Chris Matthiasson decided to make a European field blend all with Napa fruit. This wine is harmonic in that all of the varietals blend, and then come together with a big crescendo. The nose is melon and white flowers. The flavor profile is honey dew combined with nectarine.This wine is both an east drink and powerful. Light, refreshing and palate pleasing at front palate, the finish becomes very big in nectarine, orange blossom and white flowers. Highly crafted!
