Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 California Sauvignon Blanc embodies fruit from a variety of distinguished vineyards throughout California. Joel Gott targets regions that help them create the style of Sauvignon Blanc they love to drink.

Cool ocean air in Monterey and the Russian River Valley allows the grapes to ripen slowly resulting in tropical flavors and aromas. The warmer region of Napa Valley provides flavors of melon and juicy peach as well as complex textures. Fruit from Lake County adds the citrus tones and the acidity and mineral aspects that balance this blend creating a clean, crisp 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!
