Chateau Boswell Jacquelynn Cuvee Blanc 2007, 90 points

2007 Château Boswell Jacquelynn Cuvée Blanc - Web site

(USA, California, Napa Valley)

Not even released yet and it was very good. Did a tasting at the winery with the owner Josh. Very nice place. Small, quaint and exudes quality.

This 2007 Cuvee Blac had a complex nose and was an big part of the experience. Smokey with melon, caramel and vanilla. A nice golden color, almost like a sauterne. The taste was almost as good as the nose but it clearly is young and will age well. nicely rounded pallet and had some good hang-time into the finish. The finish felt young but the overall palate was great with a smokey herbal and fruit forward taste. 60 bucks might be a touch high for the blanc, but it is right on the edge. Overall, I highly suggest you try this wine. If you can get your hands on it, LOL.
