Winemaker's Notes:

Visions of Bosc pears and key lime pie framed with a wreath of honeysuckle are conjured up after smelling the aromas of our 2009 organically grown Sauvignon Blanc. A crisp entry is followed with luscious flavors of tangerine and lime. The finish is lingering and mouth watering, inviting another sip. Spicy Asian food followed by a cheese plate sounds like a great idea.
My Notes:

About Gordon Brothers Cellars:

The Gordon Brothers vineyards were established in 1980. They have planted a total of 95 acres, consisting of 25 acres of Chardonnay, 21 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 acres of Merlot, 15 acres of Syrah, 14 acres of Sauvignon Blanc, and one acre of Gewurztraminer. The vineyards lie on a perfectly oriented south-facing slope ranging from an elevation of 600 to 682 feet above sea level, on the Snake River just above Ice Harbor Dam and the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers in southeastern Washington. These mature vines are proving that the Gordon Brothers vineyard has a singular, superior micro-climate. Superb air drainage and all the favorable effects of river sites for grape growing are only two of the reasons that these are some of the most sought-after grapes and wines in the Northwest.
