Perrin + Dobbs Vineyards Ablaze Chenin Blanc/Viognier 2020
Blanc/Viognier | US
Perrin + Dobbs makes a LOT of highly coveted wines, and luckily we got in a bit early this time. 80% chenin blanc and 20% viognier, so fresh and full of flavor and flair– you will LOVE it. $12? Silly! $10 on cases? LOCO EN LA CABEZA! This reminds us of Pine Ridge's famous blend!
Winemaker Chad Alexander's philosophy is to "singular focus-creating the highest possible quality...His extreme focus on every detail from the proper soil, to his proprietary planting structure that creates “total vine balance” his exacting, almost extreme, winemaking philosophy allows for the grapes to arrive at the winery in the perfect condition to create wines that continue to rival the best in the world." Chad Alexander has worked in the industry for 20-30 years and has worked at well-known wineries like Hess Collection and V12 and other small ultra-premium wineries like Hailstone. Perrin + Dobbs is based in the Napa Valley.
What a nose! Honeysuckle, crunchy apple, grilled pineapple (though not sweet), sweet meyer lemons and lemon creme, yuzu, melon and even an incense-like note from the perfectly ripe viognier, with a hint of allspice. Fresh and lush simultaneously!
Grab a few of these and plan some fish tacos! While it lasts…just 50 cases! Did we mention $10 on case buys??
