Chateau St. Jean 2003 La Petite Etoile Vineyard Fumé Blanc (Russian River Valley)

In every vintage you can predict one thing about this wine: that it will be extremely oaky. Here the aromas are so toasted they almost cover the peach and melon lurking below. The palate offers lots of spice and white pepper along with peach, apple and herbs. The intensity of the fruit and the natural acidity save it from falling into the category of “severely overoaked.”
