Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Estate Sauvignon Blanc is effusive in its expression of the site specific soils and climate of the Spring Mountain Vineyard. A floral perfume enhanced by white peach, nectarine, Asian pear and Meyer lemon and a subtle herbal quality offer a mouth-watering invitation to the wine. Rich and elegant on the palate, the abundant layers of fruit, linden and mineral mirror its aromatics. A crisp acidity balances a lush mouth-feel, making its lingering impression one of completeness.

Critical Acclaim

"From a relatively late season for sauvignon, this wine fermented in neutral French oak and built its substantial mineral tones through ageing in barrel on the lees. At first, the leesy smokiness rides over the fruit, with lime persisting underneath. The layers of earthy flavor emerge with air, the oak recedes and the quincelike fruit blasts forward, fresh and remarkably clear. A confident Napa Valley style adopted from Bordeaux, this deserves some bottel age and pan-roasted Dover sole with chanterelles."
