Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 California Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of wines made from vineyards in Monterey, Lake and Napa Counties. The cool ocean air circulates through the vineyard in Monterey, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly for maximum flavor development. From this vineyard, tropical aromas penetrate through to the final blend.

The deeper flavor profile and more serious texture of Joel Gott 2006 Sauvignon Blanc comes from the warmer regions of Napa and Lake Counties. They ferment in 100% stainless steel to preserve the purity of the fruit and enhance the classic varietal notes.

This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of passion fruit, melon, citrus, and hints of jasmine. The palate offers succulent sweet fruit that leads to a crisp, citrus clean and long finish.

About Joel Gott:

Napa scion Joel Gott was born to make wine. His grandfather was winemaker and president of Inglenook in the 1960s and 1970s while his father, Cary Gott, is the founder of Montevina and continues to consult for wineries such as D.R. Stephens.

In addition to Joel's uncanny blending ability, he has privileged access to many of the best and as yet undiscovered fruit sources in the Napa Valley. Joel Gott wines are therefore remarkable values, offering gobs of classic California fruit, good structure and excellent balance.

Of course, Joel is also the proud proprietor of Gott's Roadside, Napa Valley's red hot retro-chic "hamburger joint" on Highway 29, and most recently, in San Francisco as well. Robert Parker once proclaimed a meal at Taylor's one of the finest meals of the year in the Wine Advocate!
