Tasting Notes:

This is your crisp refreshing summertime wine!

Take in the exotic aromas and flavors of a single vineyard wine that will quickly define your new favorite white vino. Perfect for the backyard, beach, deck, porch or patio, don't forget to have some light summer appetizers with this very food friendly gem to allow its full expression. Enjoy flavors of citrus intermingling with tropical fruits and subtle floral notes, followed quickly by minerality and balanced acidity. It's what you want in a mouthwatering, food-friendly, warm-weather white wine. 

"The Cuvée Luke is an attractive Roussanne/ Marsanne/ Viognier blend. A fresh, expressive bouquet leads to white peaches, flowers and mint in this attractive, mid-weight wine. Pretty and delicate from start to finish, the Cuvee Luke impresses for its classy, understated personality."

About the Vineyard:
A lovely lady named Saralee, a pillar in the Russian River Valley community, once walked these vineyards and cared for them as if her children. Located in the heart of Sonoma's Russian River Valley, the soils and climate of Saralee's Vineyard are ideal for many varietals including this wine blend. Often is the question asked of those working this land, "What would Saralee do?"

Food Pairing Suggestions:
The varietals in this blend make it incredibly versatile when pairing with food. The viognier specifically allows pairings with ethnic food usually very difficult to match with wine; cuisines like Indian, Asian and vegetarian foods. It also has the ability to stand up with spicy foods. Along with the previously mentioned dishes, consider the Davis Family Vineyards 'Cuvée Luke' with summer salads, light appetizers, seafood, chicken and grilled vegetables. Bon appétit.
