2013 Myriad Cellars Semillon "Old Vine"
Tofanelli Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

When Vince Tofanelli, grower extraordinaire, asked me late in the season if I was interested in some of his "Old Vine" Semillon, I jumped at the chance to work with this famed vineyard.  The old-world farming techniques, dry farming and vine to vine 2013 Myriad Cellars Semillon Tofanelli Vineyard, Calistoga attention Vince employs in his Old Vine farming is considered by many to be the soul the Napa Valley.

Its light straw color is deceiving. There is a cornucopia of lemongrass, anise, passion fruit and crystallized pineapple aromas and flavors that flow seamlessly across a plush and ample mid palate.  The extract, elegance and concentration wrapped up in this wine are a direct reflection of the farming practices that produced it.

This wine will provide pleasure as a summer sipper, but make sure to keep a few around to enjoy as it rounds out after some age and takes on the depth that Semillon is known for.
