It started a little over decade ago when Thomas Keller (owner/chef) of the famed French Laundry in Napa asked Scott Palazzo to craft a wine exclusively for his restaurant. Since then, Palazzo has turned out some amazing wines. This latest Cuvee Blanc, sourced from OLD Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc vines might be his “Piece de Resistance”

On the nose this youngster offers up a floral and seductive aromas of tropical fruit (guava, passion fruit, hints of pear Anjou, pink grapefruit and orange blossoms). On the palate, this wine is round and silky with a very opulent and broad oil texture and weight. Amazingly balanced with the right touch of zesty acidity and a touch of mineralitly rarely seen in domestic whites. The delicious passion fruit with whiffs of nectarine and Meyer lemon tease the palate. This is an amazingly complex and well-crafted wine with a stunning mouthfeel. It finishes with excellent richness and weight and complex notes of slate.
I’d call this a White Wine for Cabernet lovers!
Pair this wine with oysters & shrimp salads . Halibut, salmon & chicken dishes to roast pork & suckling pig! A Very versatile Food Wine!
