Our 2009 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc displays bright, sun-kissed aromas of fresh guava, grapefruit, lime and mineral, with hints of honeydew melon and golden apple. On the sprightly palate, brisk white grapefruit, guava, melon and lemon-lime flavors display a mouthwatering verve, with hints of pineapple and kiwi fruit on the long, refreshing finish. While this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc makes a wonderful apèritif wine, it also is delightful with a wide range of foods, including shellfish, pan-fried trout and snapper, Caesar Salad, roast chicken and turkey, and pasta primavera. Enjoy it now or age for 2-4 years.

Porch Pounder! I will make this review short and sweet - This wine is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs made and I can't get enough of it. I am not embarassed to say that on a warm summer evening I can sit on the porch and finish off a bottle myself with no problem. Crisp, Fruity nice acidic finish - Awesome!
I love Indian summer. I love the toasty smell of fallen leaves, the chill mornings lit by the glow of Venus and Orion, the top-down heat of the afternoon sun. Its summer reincarnated just weeks after it left. Even though summer has officially graduated to fall, this little taste of Indian summer is a perfect excuse to break out a light, crisp bottle of liquid sunshine.
