Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    Halfway to melons but picking up drier notes of old straw and a suggestion of something not quite fresh in its relatively outgoing aromas, this full-bodied, ripe offering is higher in weight than it is in varietal character or youthful fruit. Time is not its ally, but it can serve well alongside roasted chickens and spring vegetables over the next year or so.
