Top 10 wines in the US press29th May, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Cadaretta “SBS” Columbia Valley Washington 2012
Writing in Detroit News, Sandra Silfven highlighted two wines produced by the boutique Cadarette winery in Washington State which has been in business since the 1980’s. It not runs three wineries; Cadaretta (Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley in Washington), Clayhouse (Paso Robles and Central Coast in California), and Buried Cane (Washington).
Of this white blend she said: “This beauty is 70% Sauvignon Blanc and the rest Semillon. It’s topnotch: tart and dry, rich, structured, complex. On the nose, you catch citrus, grapefruit, herbs and every tart fruit you can think of. In the mouth, the Semillon gives it a honeyed richness in the midpalate. The finish is dry and crisp, and seems to last forever. It’s 100% fermented and aged in stainless steel. The “SBS” stands for Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.”
