The primary fruit source for our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is our estate vineyard on the north side of St. Helena; we also source fruit from the highly-respected Crocker vineyard and the acclaimed Morgan Ranch at the base of Mt. Vaca. All three vineyards provide warm days and cool nights, combined with dense clay alluvial soils–excellent growing environments for Sauvignon Blanc.
A very clean, fresh and crisp Sauvignon Blanc; Lush aromas of pineapple, guava and banana on the nose, while the palate exhibits fresh-cut grapefruit and tangy lemon zest. A wonderful apéritif wine that pairs well with lighter white fish, green salads and goat cheese.
"Bone dry and zesty in acidity, with pink grapefruit, lemongrass and green apple flavors that have a honeyed edge despite the dryness. Vibrant and clean. Nice with a salad of bitter greens and chevre and whatever else you want to add, in a simple vinaigrette. "
"Pale citrine hue. Exotic scents of passion fruit, peach and green mango. Crisp flavors of Meyer lemon and white grapefruit. Mineral and lemon echo in the lingering close."
