Our 2007 Rudd Sauvignon Blanc exhibits tremendous fruit expression of the terroir from which it comes. Our own Mt. Veeder vineyard, which is planted on steep hillside slopes at the top of the Mayacama mountain range, continues to mature and contributes an even higher proportion of the blend for this vintage. The small amount of Semillon comes from an old vineyard north of Calistoga that has intense fruit and very low yields.
The Sauvignon Blanc from Mt. Veeder comes from three different clones. Clone 1, the most traditional clone used in California, has classic acidity and structure, a Musque clone that delivers amazing floral aromatics and a special French clone 530 which has ripe melon and tropical notes and adds a rich viscosity to the wine.
"Leslie Rudd is doing an outstanding job with Sauvignon Blanc, and his offering has become one of the three or four finest Sauvignons in the Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino area. The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc (1,260 cases) is a gorgeously sexy Sauvignon exhibiting pronounced notes of honeyed melons, hints of figs and smoke, and a waxy orange-like character. It possesses the lovely texture of a white Burgundy along with the aromatic complexity and zesty acidity of a California Sauvignon. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years."
