Favorite White Blends that don't defer your retirement

Summer is just over half over here in overly-sunny vegas and more than our fair share of whites and roses have been enjoyed. I'm very partial to NZ savvy Bs but have become more interested in the blended whites this year.
Here's my uber-short list;
-Evolution by Sokol Blosser
-Cali White by Menage a Trois
-Woody White by BR Cohn
In addition to the previous suggestions, the Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier ($12), Caymus's Conundrum ($18 at Costco), Bennett Lane's White Maximus ($13-$24), Eberle Cotes du Rhone Blanc (Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier; $18), etc. If you like the Rhone grapes (I love them), you can simply look for a white Rhone blend.
In addition to some of the wines already mentioned, I would add Holly's Hill
Patriarche Blanc (60% roussanne, 40% viognier) and Unti's Cuvee Blanc
(50% genache blanc, with some picpoul and vermentino).
