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

    (From 2005 Vintage) "A delightful 2005. A supple, sumptuous, caressing style, with a silky texture and layers of rich yet elegant lemon-lime, ginger, pear and hazelnut. Beautifully balanced. Deep yet subtle. Refreshing, lively and persistent. Drink now. 5,250 cases made."
