Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Combining elegance with tremendous intensity and richness, our 2012 Sleeping Lady Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive personality of a single vineyard located against the western hills of Napa Valley. The splendidly saturated purple color and aromas of crushed black cherry, blackberry, violet and wild sage lead to deep sensual, dark-fruit flavors

Winemaker's Notes

"Our Sauvignon Blanc offers vibrant lemon-lime, floral and papaya nectar aromas. Hints of lemongrass, gooseberry and minerals - the signature of this grape varietal - add complexity. The flavors echo the aromas, while picking up lychee, melon and ginger spice. Beautifully balanced, this wine combines bright acidity with a creamy texture. Lemon custard nuances mingle in the fruit-intense finish." -Winery

    Winery notes: Our 2010 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc reveals lively aromas reminiscent of lemon custard, Key lime, orange blossom and kiwi. Hints of lemongrass and mineral--the signatures of this grape varietal--add complexity. The mouth-coating flavors pick up apple cobbler and nutmeg notes before culminating in a long, tangy finish that is lightly nuanced with sweet oak spice. This wine’s vibrant, balanced acidity makes it a delicious apéritif or complement to lighter entrées. Description "Our Sauvignon Blanc offers vibrant lemon-lime, floral and papaya nectar aromas.

Critics' Notes Crisp, with a flinty edge joining vibrant lemon notes and a tangy lime flavor. Melon accents and nectarine details chime in. Drink now. 14,000 cases made." —MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator
