2009 Treana White Wine, Santa Lucia Highlands – Mer Soleil Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA, $23 (S) – Rating 90
This rich and weighty Rhone blend of Viognier and Marsanne offers up a complex blend of flavors including white peach, honeydew, lemon crème, apricot with a bit of honey and minerality. Crisp acidity adds to the balance. While oak ageing imparts a touch of vanilla and roundness, it is subtle and well integrated. Treana White sits sur lie for nine months adding depth and character. An excellent food wine.
