($35; a blend of 55% semillon and 45% sauvignon musque) Green-gold. Deep, intensely perfumed aromas of smoked meat, lees, orange, fig and truffle, with a suave floral underpinning. Fleshy pit and orchard fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acids and complicated by dried mushroom and citrus pith qualities. Offers the complexity, nuttiness and power of a serious white Graves, with excellent finishing breadth and spicy precision. The semillon vines for this wine are planted at an elevation of 1,800 feet, according to Morgan Peterson, who runs this operation with his father, Joel, of Ravenswood.
