The grapes became our Sauvignon Blanc 2008 come from the Beckstoffer Vineyard in Rutherford. They were hand-picked at 23.5 degrees Brix and were still cool when they arrived at our winemaking facility in St Helena. We pressed the clusters whole and fermented the juice in a combination of used white wine barrels and stainless steel barrels. The natural fermentation began within days and continued slowly over a month and a half until dry. We then blocked the malo-lactic fermentation to preserve the wine's natural acidity and aromas. We kept the wine on its lees until it was bottled, unfiltered, June 4, 2008.

Shows a slight spiciness but there's very little new oak here. For all its juicy cut, this offers good texture and does not come off as hard."

"The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, aged in neutral oak, offers up notes of honeyed grapefruit in its crisp, light to medium-bodied, zesty white. Drink it over the next several years.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
