"Call to Arms" 2014

Sans Liege

How could it be? It is snowing though it’s 70. There is a rainbow forming over the lake and a flurry on shore. A thunderbolt cracks the sky, stumbling back you fall into the mint sided creek, spilling your farmer’s market basket of Rainier Cherries, Meyer lemons, honeycomb, ginger snaps and fresh herbs. The cold is coming on now as you plow through the pines, pear orchard and jasmine vines praying that the door is unlocked.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Buttered orchard fruits, baking spices, toasted bread and ripe peach are just some of the nuances the emerge from the 2014 Call To Arms. A blend of 55% Grenache Blanc and 45% Roussanne, it has a decadent texture, beautiful richness, no hard edges and a clean, enjoyable finish. Drink this pedal to the metal white over the coming couple of years." (Robert Parker)
