2016 Clos du Bois Sonoma Reserve Fumé Blanc Alexander Valley
This wine has a silver, pale straw hue with aromas of apricot, peaches, and brown spice. Bright, crisp, juicy, and refreshing flavors of peach, apricot and nectarine with a core of minerality, hints of lime peel and toast liven up the senses.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
The 2016 growing season was off to a great start with winter and spring rains, no frost events, and an earlier-than-normal bud break. Warm, sunny days followed during fruit set, resulting in even cluster development. A classic ripening season consisting of cool night and morning temperatures with moderate daytime temperatures that heated up in August allowed for mature flavor and tannin development and brought the fruit to optimum Brix levels.
