Blood Root Heringer Vineyard Chenin Blanc, Clarksburg, California 2022
Spearheaded by Noah and Kelly Dorrance of Reeve Wines, BloodRoot is a collaboration between venerated winemakers with great vineyard sourcing, who have come together to make value-minded wines that overdeliver with their quality. BloodRoot’s wines are sourced from multiple benchmark vineyards throughout California and reflect the soul of each place. BloodRoot is complementary to Noah and Kelly’s winery, Reeve Wines, which started in 2015 as a side project from Banshee Wines, of which Noah was a founder in 2009.
Typically and most famously associated with the Loire Valley region in northern France, Chenin Blanc is not a varietal you see just anywhere. Formerly primarily used as a blending grape in cheap California wines of the 70s and 80s (due to its high acid content), Chenin Blanc has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity, as well as the respect and careful viticultural attention it deserves. The vines are adaptable, hardy, and able to withstand a varying range of climates, and many of the state’s plots now contain old vines, lending richness and complexity to the bottles coming out of California. BloodRoot’s organic vineyard is located in Clarksburg in the Sacramento River Delta. The wine is made using concrete, stainless steel, and neutral oak barrels, which together produce a crisp and savory wine. This wine has been absolutely FLYING off DECANT’s shelves. We cannot keep this in stock, folks. She is the ultimate easy drinker, the life of the party, endlessly food-pairable, and just damn delicious. She is fresh, fruity, and crisp, with notes of bright yellow apple, acacia, and apple blossoms, and just a hint of Marcona almond. I love how the acidity and minerality are in perfect balance with the fruitiness. Drink her at the park, with your mother-in-law, with tinned fish (wink, wink!), or at your next fancy dinner party. — Karen Smith, Explore Like A Somm Bottle Club, April 2024
