Winemaker's Notes

our 2010 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is especially fresh, crisp and vibrant, offering bright honeydew melon, pink grapefruit, gooseberry and vanilla aromas and rich, mouthwatering, citrus, nectarine and melon flavors.

    Much more than a grapefruit bomb.

    Complex, deeply concentrated flavor with wonderfully crisp freshness. Vibrant nectarine, gooseberry and citrus aromas with rich pink grapefruit and white peach flavors.

    Really nice balanced wine. Not overly tart. Good citrusy flavor and a nice body.

    (From 2008 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. This lightly fragrant sauvignon has the classic "cat pee on a gooseberry bush" character of the grape. It's a clean and tart wine to serve with pasta tossed with English peas.
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2002 Vintage) If a little light on fruity mass, this lean and lively wine shows the varietal stamp in its mildly grassy aromas, and its flavors follow with muted grassiness playing a supporting role to direct, fairly easy-going, very slightly candied fruit. A pleasant and eminently quaffable wine for drinking this year, it ultimately wants for a bit more depth and range.
