Peachy Recent Press

In wine tasting the power of suggestion is significant. We taste wine every weekday morning as a group and if someone suggests that a wine tastes of orange, others will sniff the wine a second or third time and then discover the orange notes. When we were conducting blending trials for this Cuvée Traditional bottling, we tasted wines with varying proportions of two vineyard sites; the tasting panel was almost unanimous in approval of one wine. Ted described this wine as tasting of “ripe peach” and soon others were sniffing and agreeing. Eighty percent of the preferred blend came from Navarro's Peach Vineyard, so named because it shares a hillside with an old peach orchard. Could a peach orchard affect the flavor of grapes grown close by? Perhaps, although a touch of botrytis may be part of the explanation. Plumper than Navarro's drier Estate Bottled cuvée, it's a perfect match for curry or spicy tamales. Gold Medal winner.
