Winemaker's Notes

Our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.

One of my favorite dishes with Sauvignon Blanc is fresh raw oysters (small ones, like Kumamotos) marinated in a ceviche marinade (lemon/lime juice, finely chopped onions, tomato, fresh jalapenos, cilantro, salt) served chilled on the half shell with chilled Sauvignon Blanc.

Critical Acclaim

"Lots to like in this dry, crisp, fruity young Sauvignon Blanc. It offers a sunburst of lemon, lime, and green grass flavors, with a touch of wild gooseberry and vanilla. Feels sleek and clean in the mouth. Editors' Choice."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
