Winemaker's Notes

Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal white wine to compliment a variety of lighter, fresher foods. This 1999 bottling, all from our "Home Ranch Vineyard", is just one of those wines.

Sauvignon Blanc is known as an aromatic varietal, and this wine is packed with all the goodies - peaches, nutmeg, celery, mint, and chili peppers. A dash of honeysuckle is the frosting on the cake.

Clean, fresh flavors of herbs, stone fruits and minerals harmonize on the palate. This is not, by design, a wine of weight, but rather a wine of substance, a wine of quality that has a pleasing texture and a long finish.

A full-flavored but light wine that will be most enjoyable over the next year.
