In the Old World regions of the wine world, it is commonplace to give credit to the place in which a wine was produced, rather than the grape it was made from. For that reason, the French would refer to a wine as a White Burgundy, instead of a Chardonnay. This system works because of the regulations in place that largely prohibit the growing and blending of particular varieties in certain places. As a result, you would be hard pressed to find a French blend of Burgundy's Chardonnay and the Northern Rhone's Marsanne and Viognier. 

Here in the Napa Valley though, we are encouraged to experiment. Our culture promotes new ideas and the discovery of great new wines. For that reason, we stray from the crowd and endeavor to find the next great blend. Never knowing what that blend might be, or what a vintage may hold in store for us, we choose to call our premiere white wine: Blanc Caché—the Hidden White.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The aromatics of this wine build high and overflow the rim of the glass. Immediately it mesmerizes with decadent Fall spice. Enough cinnamon to make you crave a churro, and enough spiced, baked apple to make you beg for a turnover. There’s even a buttery element reminiscent of flakey, homemade pie crust! The nature of the fruit is ripe and cooked, with a distinct apricot juice aroma. On the palate, this wine sits heavy with a waxy, honeycomb weight. Hints of oak come through in the form of vanillin and meringue cookies. There couldn’t be a better pairing for this wine than pumpkin pie, but any Fall favorite will do in a pinch!
