“The 2015 On the White Keys is fresh, elegant and delivers an abundance of flavor! Overflowing with aromas of lemongrass, verbena, honeysuckle and grapefruit, the palate displays wonderfully focused layers of kiwi, wild strawberry and lime. Showing a surprisingly persistent finish, this will certainly prove to be one of the top whites under $100 this vintage. Bravo!”

Background
When you sit down for that special dinner at Napa’s iconic French Laundry restaurant (after waiting months for your reservation) and you're ready to enjoy your first course of “Oysters and Pearls,” the exquisite Arietta Sauvignon Blanc “On The White Keys” is always the recommended pairing. Arietta's winemaker is none other than former Screaming Eagle genius Andy Erickson, whose multiple 100 point scores have made him one of Napa's most celebrated winemakers ever. This explains how Arietta was chosen to feature on the Laundry's notoriously finicky list. RSVP today so you may enjoy with your own food pairings this Summer!
