Burnt Bridge Cellars 2014 Pont Brûlé Blanc White Wine, Columbia Valley, $25

By on March 26, 2016

BBC_Pont-Brule-Blanc_LRCancer researcher David Smith put together this Rhône-style blend of Viognier and Marsanne from Les Collines and Boushey vineyards before he stepped down as winemaker at this young Vancouver, Wash., brand. The nose is lovely with hints of marshmallow, dried apricot lemon meringue pie and caramel, a legacy of its time in neutral French oak. On the palate, the theme focuses on Bosc pear, dried apple and lemon peel, backed by a long finish of lemon oil extract.
