Rebel Coast Cannabis 2016 Sauvignon Blanc.
When cannabis became legal in California they knew if anyone was going to make weed wine it would be them. But the problem was cannabis and alcohol cannot be sold under the same roof, or even in the same bottle. So, they came up with a simple solution. They make their wines in Sonoma, remove just the alcohol and replace it with fast-acting THC. Each glass has 10mg of THC, meaning you can enjoy it at a dinner party and still be able to talk to everyone. Removing just the alcohol had a great consequence too. Traditional wines have ~150 calories per glass, and our cannabis wine (without the alcohol) has only 49.

Smells and tastes like wine. Alcohol replaced with THC. No HANGOVER. Fast acting Sativa. Only 49 calories per glass. Turns out removing the alcohol also removes the calories! Yeah!

Murphy-Goode’s Sauvignon Blanc, The Fumé

Does Fumé refer to another grape varietal? Ask The Wine Ladies.

Dear Wine Ladies,

As a fan of Sauvignon Blanc my wife recently enjoyed a wine that was labeled Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc, The Fumé from California. She absolutely loved it! Does “The Fumé” refer to another grape that is used in the making of this wine?

Chuck,

San Diego, California

Ask The Wine Ladies

Ask The Wine Ladies- Please submit your questions to info@thewineladies.com

 

Dear Chuck,

No it is not actually the name of a grape varietal. Although Blanc Fumé is a synonym used in the Upper Loire Valley of France for Sauvignon Blanc.

Murphy-Goode’s Sauvignon Blanc, is a blended wine of two varietals, primarily Sauvignon Blanc and a hint of Semillon. Semilillon is a grape known for its blending with Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux.

David Ready Jr. the Winemaker for Murphy-Goode tells us, “the Semillon gives the wine those delicate floral notes and the touch of oak gives the wine that smokey, intriguing “fume“ personality”. A delightful wine indeed. We had the pleasure to enjoy with  Dave, at the  Murphy-Goode winery on a recent visit to Healdsburg in Sonoma County.

Please see link to this passionate winemaker’s description of this wine.

Fumé Blanc is a term that got its start in the early 1970’s when a California producer decided to rename his Sauvignon Blanc, Fumé Blanc and change it up with a bit of oak aging and a new dark green Bordeaux bottle. All agree the name was a bit of great marketing, riding the coat tails of the very popular French wine export Pouilly-Fumé.
