Product Description

About the wine: Created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is bold and intriguing. In establishing our own spin on a white blend, winemaker Jen Beloz and her team sought out interesting Rhône and aromatic varietals that would nicely compliment a classic Chardonnay base. Through partnering with growers who are dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyards throughout California, the result is a wine that is complex and delicious. Winemaker notes: Aromatic and inviting, the wine opens up with subtle notes of mandarin and meyer lemon zest, complimented on the palette with delightful avors of Anjou pear, roasted marshmallow, spiced apple tart and a hint of minerality . The nish is rich and creamy with bright, balanced acidity. The blend: 35% Chardonnay 60% Rhone Whites (Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc) 5% Aromatics (Semillon and Riesling) The Vineyards: Napa Valley- Stagecoach, Rodgers, Somerston Sonoma/Carneros- Sangiacomo, La Prenda Paso Robles- Derby Santa Ynez- Camp 4 Aging: Aged in 25% New oak (combination of French and Hungarian), 60% neutral oak and 15% stainless steel for 10 months
