"This fourth release of the multivintage La Dame Michele is from Chardonnay. Bright citrus aromas of key lime and lemon peel comingle with undertones of jasmine, water flowers, toasted almond, beeswax. Wonderfully dry with bracing acidity. Green apple, grapefruit and Asian pear on the palate. The lively mousse and persistent bead are elegant. This sparkling finishes with mineraluty and a hint of brioche."
"Western clone Sauvignon Blanc provides brightness with energy. A dollop of musque clone adds nuance and complexity. Fuji apple, lychee nut, honeydew melon and tangerine blossoms on the nose. Ruby grapefruit, tart fruit cocktail and yellow peach flavors intermingle with lemongrass and jasmine tea. Stainless steel fermentation allows for the wine’s body to be svelte and fruit focused with subtle aromatics."
"Musque clone Sauvignon Blanc vines planted almost twenty years ago by John Anthony Truchard on two acres of estate vineyard in Carneros. Aromas of tropical and stone fruit, white flower and vanilla nougat. Juicy, ripe flavors of cantaloupe and baked pineapple balanced by tart passionfruit and light toasted almond. The palate is round and complex with refreshing acidity and a bright, mineral finish."
"Rich aromatics of ripe bosc pear, baked apples and toasted, buttered brioche are framed by hints of mandarin blossom and citrus. The palate is creamy and expansive with notes of apple pie, savory spices and lemon meringue. The ending is soft and well-balanced with a lingering vanilla and spiced nougat finish."
"The warm honey-gold hue of this late harvest is a prelude to the intense mouth watering fragrance. Inviting aromas of succulent ripe apricot, peaches and pears draw you in with accents of honeysuckle, all spice and nutmeg. In the mouth there is explosion of flavor unfolding with dried pear and apricot, bright peach and a hint of orange blossom and baked lemon custard. Flavors develop and unfold over the pallet with perfectly balanced acidity ending in a long lingering finish."
"Mixed berry aromas with plum and dark currant. Hints of black licorice and sweet herbs. On the palate, the wine is rich and broad with firm structure balanced by a supple finish. Blackberry and Cassis flavors dominate with the support of five spice and a high mineral tone. This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon continues to bear the standard for John Anthony. It can be enjoyed immediately and for the next 15 years to come."
