2010 Oakville Napa Valley I Block To Kalon Vineyard Fumé Blanc

An old-vine Oakville treasure, I Block is one of those rare opportunities for sauvignon blanc in Napa Valley. Planted on prime cabernet ground in 1945, these stalwarts have survived several replantings of the neighboring vines. Today, they grow a white wine with the structural strength and longevity of a red, the fruit potent enough to live up to the new oak in which a third of it ferments and ages. The initial scents of passion fruit and tropical citrus weave through leesy flavors, all sewn up by lemon-tinged acidity. It’s youthfully firm, needing air to show its layered complexities. Decant it for salmon or rest it in the cellar for ten years. (131 cases)
