Winemaker's Notes:

To create a light, fresh Sauvignon Blanc that displays intense fruit flavors and exceptional balance, we blend grapes from Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley, and then ferment and finish the wine in stainless steel to capture the varietal's vibrant attributes. Our Alexander Valley fruit provides a core of citrus and juicy tropical fruit flavors while the grapes we harvest from Dry Creek Valley lend mineral characteristics.

The wine appears light golden yellow, with aromas of tangerine, pink grapefruit, honeysuckle and minerals.

The palate displays flavors of pineapple, lemon, figs and clover.

About Francis Ford Coppola Winery:

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, whose passion for wine, food and adventure is nowhere more evident than in this new production – a winery resort located in the heart of Alexander Valley, California. Among the many attractions at the property, Francis Ford Coppola Winery features a wine tasting bar, two restaurants, swimming pools, a movie gallery, a performing arts pavilion and a park area with game tables and bocce courts.

Francis puts it best, saying the winery is meant to be "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."
