Langandreed chenin napa

Chenin Blanc, Napa Valley 2016

Lang & Reed Wine Co.

The Lang & Reed 2016 Chenin Blanc – Napa Valley has a brilliant green-gold color that flashes when swirled and then gives off an inviting aroma of stone fruit, peach, pear, and a touch of honey. On the palate, jasmine and herbs comingle with apricot nectar and orange blossom honey, while showing off a bracing acidity and a slight saline, mineral complexity. This wine is a full mouthful of flavor… no shrinking violet here! With its underlying structure, it will age beautifully over the next few years.

Reviews

  • "90 points. The 2016 Chenin Blanc features notes of Golden Delicious apples, fresh pears and honeysuckle with a touch of nutmeg. Medium-bodied, bone dry and with a racy acid line cutting through the mouth-filling apple and savory layers, it offers great freshness and understated intensity, finishing on a pepper and spice note." (Wine Advocate)
  • "90 points. Distinctive and refreshing, with fleshy nectarine and apricot notes that feature a vibrant thread of acidity, keeping the flavors fresh and juicy. Accents of honeycomb and chamomile linger on the finish. Drink now. 248 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
