Tasting Notes

Melon and prosciutto keep popping into mind while thinking about this Sauvignon Blanc, although we’re certain it would pair well with a variety of fresh summer foods, fish, pork, and chicken. Just looking for a quick patio sip? Fear not - this wine is equally pleasurable all on its own. 

Winemaker Notes

The 2013 vintage marks the second year of making our Sauvignon Blanc in Sonoma County. A worthy successor to the hugely popular 2012, this one really validates our decision to switch appellations from Napa and bring the wine closer to home. We again worked with the same vineyards in the Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys to craft a medium bodied, brisk, and eminently crowd pleasing wine. Our vineyard sources have vines ranging from 9-31 years old and a feature a variety of clonal selections.

As in years past, we have included a healthy portion of the Sauvignon Blanc Musqué clone (30%) which imbues the wine with its unique aromatic signature. It is one part sweet floral honeysuckle and one part fresh spring garden. One the palate one finds green apples, kadota fig and a hint of ginger.

Vinification and elevage was done primarily in stainless steel, but also includes a portion that was fermented and aged neutral barrels (25%) and new barrels (5%). This mixture gives the wine great texture and superb mid-palate. It also enables the wine to cut a long profile while retaining a refreshing frame.
