Cuvee Luke, Saralee's Vineyard in Guy Davis Right Hand, Roussanne-Marsanne-Viognier

With warmer months ahead of us, Cuvee Luke, Saralee's Vineyard (Sierra Foothills) from Davis Family Vineyards will be a great addition to anyone's wine selection.


Guy Davis is holding it in his right hand (left of picture, above). In Guy's left hand is his Zinfandel, Old Vines (planted in 1896) also from Russian River Valley.

I tasted both wines (and took this picture) at Sonoma in the City wine tasting on April 1, 2014 in New York.

Cuvee Luke is a sunny Rhone style white wine, blend of Roussanne-Marsanne-Viognier, and comes from vines planted at 2500 feet in the Sierra Foothills.
