Winemaker's Notes

"Near perfect in the way it tastes almost sweet, then pulls back into dryness. The flavors of pineapples, green apples, pears, peaches and honeysuckle are made even more delicious by the judicious application of new oak and sur lie aging." 93 Points
Wine Enthusiast

"Showing off a nicely ripe edge to its otherwise sleek fruit aromas of nectarine, white peach and varietal grasses and dry straw, this one is full and lightly fleshy in feel with a firming streak of youth- ful tightness providing both spine and balance for today as well as promising further rounding and richness as the wine ages. It needs but two or three years to see its best with dishes ranging from cracked crab to lobster newburg."

This was an absolute hit at dinner tonight. I had been having enormous success with Sauvignon Blancs from the Russian River Valley, and decided to push my luck. This wine did NOT disappoint. The pleasant grapefruit orchard scent, sweet peach attack, and long, dry, and euphoric finish made for a great night at the table. Excellent with all courses: Lemon-Onion Chicken Salad Tatar, Goat Cheese Salad, and Scottish Salmon with Pesto. Cheers!

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
