Sanguis Postcard From Morocco Proprietary White Blend 2010

Sanguis Postcard From Morocco Proprietary White Blend 750ml 2010      
Sku: 1760547*

The wine is a product of the first of several new vineyard blocks we planted in 2006/07, this one at John O’Donnel’sbeautiful Watch Hill Vineyard – a beautiful hilltop block planted mostly to Roussanneand lesser percentages of Marsanneand Viognier. (Full disclosure: a little bit of Bien NacidoChardonnay also snuck its way into this wine - but, hey that’s OK, this is Sanguis - everything goes).

Another white loaded with personality, the white Rhone-blend 2010 Postcard from Morocco is lush, full-bodied and unctuous. It flows with the essence of honey, tangerine, hazelnut and dried apricots. There is a hint of botrytis-like sweetness and viscosity in the 2010, perhaps owing to a very late harvest that stretched into November. The blend is 52% Roussanne, 31% Viognier, 9% Marsanne and 8% Chardonnay, mostly from Watch Hill, with 2% fruit from Bien Nacido. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.

Wine maker notes
When I was a kid our family once went on a winter trip to north Africa and what was then the epitome of an exotic place for a 12-year old German boy, chilled to the bones from months of damp, gray winter. We finally arrived – after flight delays in Munich due to a snowstorm, and more delays in Tunisia (evidently due to a sandstorm) – around midnight. The first thing that hit the young German boy as he exited the old DC-9 (or DC-whatever – it was old) was the warm breeze heavy with the intoxicating scents of the abundant blood orange blossoms and night jasmine planted there. This wine is as close to that experience as it gets (and the experience is probably at least 29.7% responsible for the choice of my current profession and passion for things that smell great...especially at night)
