Winemaker's Notes

The main source for the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is the estate vineyard surrounding our winery on Dunaweal Lane just south of Calistoga. The Sauvignon Blanc here develops complex and interesting aromatics and flavors, and the cold nights retain crisp acidity which affords the wine great freshness and liveliness. In 2009, we brought in some old vine fruit from a nearby site that compliments the minerality and steeliness of the estate with underlying richness and juiciness.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale, bright yellow. Pungent aromas of grapefruit pith, tarragon and white pepper, with a riper suggestion of orange blossom. Dense, tactile and juicy, with very good intensity to the tangy citrus peel and floral flavors. Still a bit youthfully disjointed but not at all hard. Finishes fresh and pure, with a piquant grapefruit flavor and very good thrust. I'd wait 6 to 12 months before pulling the cork-or, I should say, before unscrewing the cap."
