Winemaker's Notes

A fantastic Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley! The 2005 vintage exhibits rich aromas of orange, lime and grapefruit marmalade, elderflower, honeycomb, jasmine and fig. It is a finely balanced wine, with dense layers of flavor and texture cut with a firm line of citrus fruit acidity. Delicious flavors of floral honey, apricot and grapefruit "zing" through the palate. Typical of the Gamble Vineyards wine; clean, crisp with persistent finish.

The 16-acre Gamble Vineyard is located in Yountville, north of Carneros at the southern end of the Napa Valley. This superb rocky site is warm enough to develop Sauvignon Blanc's tropical fruit flavors, yet cool enough to retain its natural fruit balance and crispness. Half of Gamble Vineyard is planted to the Sauvignon Musque clone, a third generation of the original bud wood brought from the Loire Valley in the 1950s – the other half to the Preston Clone, descended from the Graves region of Bordeaux.
