Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The hallmark of the Allomi Vineyard is Sauvignon Blanc with true varietal signature, evidenced by aromas of gooseberry, pineapple and lychee in a decidedly New World styling, with racy acidity and flavors of fresh ruby red grapefruit and guava, balanced by floral notes of jasmine and lemon verbena.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2004 Vintage) 5% Petit Verdot; 3% Merlot; 3% Malbec. Sweet oak and hints of cinnamon and clove team with black cherries and a touch of cassis in the relatively complex aromas and do the same in the accessible flavors of this direct and already tasty young Cab. Its withdrawn tannins may make it more friendly, yet there is still spine enough to ensure mid-term aging but not so much as to dissuade drinking soon.
