Winemaker's Notes

The crisp, pure fruit expression of citrus, apricot, melon, spices and wildflowers in our 1999 Stags Leap District Sauvignon Blanc reflects the terroir of this celebrated region. We made the wine entirely from grapes grown in our own vineyards and aged it sur lie (on the yeast) to give the wine depth on the palate.

With bottle aging, the wine will increase in complexity for at least five years, if properly stored at a constant 55º-60ºF.
