LOOMIS ALIMONY White Rhone Blend, Napa Valley

Regular price $29.00

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 100% Napa Valley fruit, 1500 foot elevation
  • Grenache Blanc and Viognier  
  • Multi vintage blend, like a grand cuvee

WINEMAKER: Rudy Zuidema (Robert Craig, Ehlers, Shadybrook, Encanto, Allyris)

WHAT WE TASTED: With a slight golden hue, this wine expresses aromas of honey, poached pear and apricot with a slight wisp of maple. Honeysuckle and lemon curd dominate the flavor profile with an ever so subtle touch of vanilla in the finish.

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Shrimp and grits/spicy polenta
  • Chicken apple sausage and sauerkraut
  • The final alimony check

PERSONALITY: Jeff Loomis wanted to call these wines "Alimony", but his son Max convinced him, that while damn funny, "Resolution" was far more positive. He said it sounded bitter. As usual, he was right. So .. inspired by the more amazing and positive things in life, these wines showcase Jeff's passion and love of Rhone varietals.

TECHNICAL:

  • Highest elevation vineyard near Lake Berryessa
  • Aged a long time in French oak
  • Don't overthink it, just drink it
  • 100 cases produced
