Katy and Chris Taste and Discuss Lot 893 2020 Calistoga Semillon
Our first white wine branded with the coveted Black Label Series labels, we introduce to you Lot 893 Calistoga Semillon. Take a sunny walk through this orchard and you will not be disappointed.
Lot 893 leaps from the glass with lifted aromatics of citrus blossoms, white peach, and apricot preserve. On the palate, that aromatic quality carries through beautifully, backed by hints of toasty oak and wood spice ending in a long, crisp vivacious finish. As one of our tasting panelists exclaimed when they tried it, “This tastes like a sunny walk through an orange orchard.” 893 is still a bit young, so grab a few cases, one for now and one to throw down for a few years as it has the componentry to cellar for another 10+ easily.
Watch as Chris Lafleur, Sommeliers Creed for Cameron Hughes, and Katy Long, Director of International Wines for VWE, walk us through a tasting and discuss this exciting Calistoga Semillon release.
