This was one of the best wines I tasted at my Spring Wine Weekend, Inspire Napa Valley...unbelievable White, worthy of our attention. It drank like a sophisticated, thirst-quenching Sauvignon Blanc blended with just the right amount of Semillon. I have been big on finding the best SB/SB blends that drink at the same level as some of the best White Bordeauxs and this is one of them. “Bright aromatics of Kaffir lime and white peony tea are grounded by rich lemon curd and white nectarine. The palate leads with creamy Tosca pear and stonefruit alongside lemon oil and wild jasmine. A long beam of glowing acidity carries the spiced, custard apple-y finish, offering a delightful play of acidity and minerality against fruit and oak. Textured and lively, Aisana is serious enough to merit contemplation, yet refreshing enough to explain the bottle being undeniably empty soon after opening it. Just what we hunger for in white wine.

2021 marks the 5th vintage of this new micro-winery with a few hundred cases produced of this richly focused Cabernet blend from Nigel and Shae Kinsman. I have known Shae for more than a decade from her time spent working at Abreu Vineyards and Nigel through his winemaking days at Eisele Vineyard and now Accendo Cellars, Bella Oaks and Impensata. Together, they have crafted their own winery after working with some of the best estates in California.
