Winemaker's Notes

In 2004, we have chosen to use what is sometimes referred to as the most flamboyant of Sauvignon Blanc clones, 100% Musque clone, in order to accentuate the fresh combinations of tropical, citrus, floral and even exotic characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of kiwi, key lime, tangerine, apricot and honeysuckle accented by a slight mineral component and crisp acidity. An enticing, rich texture adds to the depth and complexity of the wine. This wine definitely lives up to our mantra of "Grass is for Cows."
