Grgich Hills Fume Blanc 2005

Awesome, robust wine, full of apricot and spice, more delicate pear flavors upon first opening. Strong enough to stand up to meat. Paired beautifully with a lamb tagine with dried fruits.

(since we bought so much of the wine for my Murphy Goode Winery job application video). Fortunately, the Fumé Blanc (the Californication of Sauvignon Blanc) is super perfect for the beginning of summer since it pairs well with "appetizers, salads, grilled chicken or fish, light sauces and lighter dishes in general. The wine's succulent fruit and good acidity complement fresh seafood, particularly shellfish." So this weekend, we're throwing some shrimp on the barbie (maybe a couple on ken, too), and starting the summer off with Murphy Goode's "The Fumé."
