We are always looking for Sauvignon Blanc flavors that are unique, true to the variety, pleasant and intriguing. Sauvignon Blanc grown in specific terroirs can sometimes display very strong "Sauvignon" aromatics. These include Boxwood or Juniper, guava, fig, grapefruit and pineapple. I wanted to find fruit that added hints of all these, but a little more of the Boxwood character that is often associated with very cool climate, southern hemisphere Sauvignon Blancs. This premiere release Grand Reserve has all these aromatics including a distinctive note that asks to be evaluated over and over in the glass. – Randy Ullom, Winemaster
"This deep, generously fruited look at the grape achieves an extra measure of richness when compared to the field, and its involving interplay of ripe figs, fresh herbs and toasty oak spice is spot on in terms of varietal expression. Both weighty and very well-balanced, it is a wine of evident range and substance, and it will make splendid drinking with entrees that range from meaty, full-flavored white-fleshed fishes to savory herbed chicken."
