Though the blend has changed over the years, The White Coat (named for Larry’s past as an Emergency Room physician) is composed of white Rhône grapes from three of our Estate vineyards across California. The rich, textured Roussanne from Rattlesnake Ridge on Howell Mountain in Napa is moderated by acidity and structure provided by the Grenache Blanc grown in the calcareous soils of the Pesenti Vineyard in Paso Robles. Finally, the blend is rounded out with a touch of refreshing, mineral Vermentino (also known as Rolle) from the granitic and quartz-laden Cobb Vineyard in Amador. The result is an exceptional, dynamic white wine that is truly California. Exquisitely aromatic, with white flowers, ripe stone fruit, and crushed minerals on the nose. With great acidity and 13.8% abv the wine is lithe on the mid-palate, while maintaining the substantial body and finish we love so much about this unique California white wine. Since it sees all French oak barrels (of which only 10% are new) and we don’t stir the lees, all the of texture comes from the grapes themselves. This is a serious white wine, the likes of which you can’t find anywhere else!
