This new Walla Walla winery premieres with a toasty, soft, barrel- fermented Bordeaux blanc blend that's 70% Sém, 30% Sauv Blanc. The fruit is ripe and packed with rich flavors, without being too fat and tropical. Its lightly herbal, grassy nuances combine with plenty of well-managed, pleasantly spicy, toasty oak.
