This dry Semillon comes from old vines taken from cuttings of the original vines planted in 1909 which came from Chateau d'Yquem. As demonstrated by the outstanding track record of this Semillon since its 1979 debut release, the Livermore vineyard, with its thin top sois and gravel bedrock, is ideal for making great Semillon. This 2000 is another superb vintage. Rich, intense flavors with delicious persistence.

 "Even better, the 2000 Semillon is a blend of 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc with some of the Semillon coming from 100-year-old vines. The wine was fermented in French oak for ten months and bottled without filtration in August, 2001. It displays a light gold color as well as aromas of wet gravel, honeysuckle, candle wax, orange marmalade and earth. Full-bodied, exceptionally fresh, rich and long, this remarkable white wine should drink well for 10+ more years." 93/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
