The 2003 Sublime Isolation is a blend of 44% Chardonnay, 37% Roussanne, and 19% Viognier, all from the Alban vineyard. Aromatically restrained by SQN standards, with coaxing it offers up notes of honeyed pineapples, minerals, and flowers, but it is much more timid than its younger sibling. Rich, pure, and deliciously textured in the mouth, it reveals more on the palate than in its aromas, which should develop more nuances with additional bottle age. Sadly, production of this brilliant dry white proprietary wine is a minuscule 250 cases. (RP)
Deep yellow. More deeply pitched on the nose than the 2004 white blend but equally pure: pineapple, grapefruit, menthol, minerals and smoke, with hints of more exotic fruits. Conveys an even rounder, sweeter, fuller impression than the '03, with glyceral, layered flavors of mirabelle, honey and herbs. But without the floral lift of the 2004, this impressively fat and rich wine is just short of heavy. (ST)
