Winemaker's Notes

Raymond Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from small, secluded vineyards in the eastern portion of the Napa Valley where daytime temperatures tend to be slightly warmer than the main valley floor and have generally shorter growing seasons. This area is ideal for producing crisp, clean, citrus overtoned Sauvignon Blanc fruit. The 2006 growing season was marked by mild spring and summer weather extending ripening periods by several weeks. As a result, Raymond's Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked the second week of September, highlighting a classic example of the diverse Napa Valley growing region.

This wine's opening aromas of grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange blossoms are followed by hints of hibiscus and lemon grass notes. Upon entry, the mouth fills with flavors of ripe grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, lime and orange. A balanced, medium-bodied wine with crisp, lively acidity and a pleasant, smooth finish.

Food pairings: A wonderful wine to enjoy on its own or served with sushi, raw oysters on the half shell, grilled scallops, poached halibut or sea bass, smoked salmon, lemon grass chicken and Quiche Lorraine. Versatile and refreshing, it also pairs with a variety of ethnic cuisines from spicy Thai to Vietnamese or Indian curry dishes.
