A Specatcular White by the Scarecrow Winemaker

The Kelly Fleming Estate is located next door to Napa collectible Araujo on Pickett Road in Calistoga. The estate might be 300 acres, but only 12 acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, while the other 288 acres are its own natural wildlife preserve.  Planted in 2002, this winery is slowly but surely turning into a “who is who” in Napa.  Add “star” winemaking consultant Celia Welch, and the key to success is there!  Only a few hundred cases each of Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc are produced each year, so my advice – jump on it now!  FYI: Kelly is married to famed restaurateur Paul Fleming, creator of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse restaurants.

This expressive and fresh wine entices with aromas of honeydew melon, grapefruit, and ripe pear. The palate entry is coating and viscous yet there is a vibrant, mineral-driven acidity that focuses the wine from entry to finish. Flavors are bright and floral, perfumed with white flowers, peach cream and lime zest.  A hint of spice adds depth and complexity to this pretty, aromatic white wine.
