2020 Whitehall Lane Semillon Rutherford, Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 92+ Points
This surprisingly complex Semillon opens with sophisticated, slightly creamy aromas of golden fig, gooseberry, dried mango, guava, honeydew melon rind and a hint of lime chutney. It is supple and intriguingly textured on the palate, where notes of apple core and pomelo pith join the flavor panorama promised in the nose. The finish is deep, fully dry and lingers with a cleansing crispness. Food-worthy and delicious, it is ready to serve. 186 cases produced.
