Blockbuster White, under $35!

The precipitous drive to the vista point has you on edge. Sensing you are close, you roll the window down and the crisp breeze carries in scents of lemongrass, honeycomb, wildflowers and oregano. Together you sit on the hood of the car with a blanket wrapped around your shoulders and share a snack of Asian pears and salted Marcona almonds. You made it and it was worth it. But it’s just beginning. The wine is a blend of 63% Grenache Blanc & 37% Roussanne, and was sourced from the  Alta Colina Vineyard in Paso Robles.

Jed Dunnuck 93 Points: A blend of  Grenache Blanc and  Roussanne, the Sans Liege Call to Arms comes entirely from the Alta Colina Vineyard in Paso Robles and was barrel fermented and spent 18 months in a combination of stainless steel, new French oak and neutral barrels. This total blockbuster white is locked and loaded with notions of butter citrus, tropical fruit, orange blossom and spice. Big, rich, unctuous and opulent on the palate, with beautiful depth and richness that never seems heavy. It’s a sensational wine that will be a giant killer in blind tastings.

Robert Parker: “A blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, the 2016 Call to Arms offers up a pretty bouquet of lemon oil, honeycomb, melon and peach. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and texturally glossy without being overbearing, underpinned by juicy acids and finishing with chalky grip. This reminded me of a cool vintage from the Rhône valley’s Château des Tours.”
