(60% from Boushey and 40% from Red Willow, harvested on August 19 and 20 in 2015; 20% malolactic fermentation; 10% new oak and 15% concrete egg): Pale yellow. Hints of ripe peach, honeysuckle, resin and minerals on the nose. On the palate, concentrated citrus peel and tropical fruit flavors are complicated by a mineral component from Red Willow and intensified by bracing acidity. This rather powerful Sauvignon Blanc will need another 9 to 12 months to release its minerality. Chris Peterson described the 2015 vintage as "merely early, not weird." He did not correct the alcohol or acidity (other than the partially blocked malo, of course), and the pH here is 3.15. (ST)
I always love this cuvee from Chris, and the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Boushey Vineyard Oliane is no exception. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc (Boushey and Red Willow Vineyards) aged mostly in neutral oak (on lees), it had 15% of the blend aged in concrete eggs and 8% in new barrels. Lychee, citrus blossom, mint and some exotic notes all emerge from the glass and it's crisp, lively and pure on the palate. (JD)
A blend of fruit from top sites Boushey (60%) and Red Willow, the aromas are light, with notes of straw, lemon pith and grapefruit. The flavors show an elegant styling, framed by a tart zing of acidity that stretches out the finish. It's all about nuance.
