Winemaker Notes

This wine is a textural adventure. Think of it as a Montrachet drinkers Sauvignon Blanc. Where Sauvignon Blanc can be lean, the Musqué Clone is structured. Where Sauvignon Blanc is more lemon, the Musqué Clone is more tangerine-lime. Round and robust, this 50% neutral barrel, 50% stainless steel fermented wine is unexpectedly rich and creamy on the palate with subdued citrus aromatics tinted with slightly savory tones. Musque the mysterious…Somebody call the X-Files.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Crisp, dry and searing in acidity, this 100% varietal wine is complex, showing sour lemon and brine notes, with orange blossom tones weaving their way throughout. A delight on the palate, the wine takes on structured weight toward the finish, making sure to leave an impression.

The 2014 Bodkin Musque Clone Sauvignon Blanc deftly balances the intense flavors—dried herbs, savory earth, and black olives—with the user-friendly characteristics of the grape—ripe melon and core fruits. Not wanting to be merely a wine for everyone the winery has produced a high acid, food-friendly that will appeal to wine geeks as well as neophytes to wine imbibing. Drinks well now.

"The story of Bodkin Wines starts on a muddy field outside the town of Agincourt in the north of France on the 25th of October, 1415. Small in numbers, starved for days and ravaged by sickness an English army of 5,000 peasant archers and 1,000 knights, led by their 28-year-old King found itself trapped. Sanding between English and the safety of their land was an army of nearly 30,000 of the wealthiest and best armed men in all of France ready for battle--giddy to collect the ransom of a king. But no ransom was to be collected. For on that day, the feast day of Saints Crispin and Crispinian, Henry V and his army of peasant bowmen with their armor-piercing bodkin-pointed arrows gave history a story that inspired Shakespeare to pen a legend for the ages.

584 years later, I first heard this story in Mr. Alberty's English Literature class at Washington High in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Bravery and brotherhood, arrows and axes, stirring speeches and a smoking hot French princess--the play Henry V had everything an 18 year old nerdling could have wanted--I was hooked. The play's most famous quote ''We few, we happy few'' has been my motto since I started working my way up through world of wine production in 2003. This 2011 Sauvignon Blanc marks my first commercial release and I hope you enjoy drinking this wine as much I enjoyed the journey of making it...Yay-yay-yay, I know it sounds cliché, but I mean it...Cheers!"

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
