Winemaker Notes

The 2002 Crocker & Starr Sauvignon Blanc is a combination of two distinct vineyards in the Napa Valley – the Crocker Vineyard in St. Helena and the Hyde Las Trancas Vineyard in southern Napa. Each site was specifically chosen for its unique terroir and then planted using the same special selection of Sauvignon Blanc called Sauvignon Musque. This vintage marks the second version of this wine. One more year of vine maturity made a significant impact intensifying the personality of the grapes. Each vineyard is harvested separately and allowed to become its own unique personality as wine. In March, after several months resting on the lees, the two wines finally meet and merge to become the best of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The result – WOW! Explosive aromas of ripe Sauvignon fruit – guava, lime, and citrus blossom – immediately capture your attention. Great follow through on the palate beginning with sweet juicey flavors of limeade and kiwi then finishing with exotic white grapefruit. An attention getter with long, lively and luscious balance! Definitely a wine to enjoy on its own or with a wide array of culinary fare.

"Winemaker Pam Starr blasts one out of the park with this, her second vintage of Crocker & Starr Sauvignon. Loaded with lemony verve and intensity, it offers ripe lime peel, quince, melon and green pear flavors that are rich and concentrated, with a tangy, lingering aftertaste." WS Weekly Review

Crocker & Starr Winery Image
Crocker & Starr Wines is a partnership between a historic vineyard site and a winemaker focused on producing distinctive wines of this unique place. In 1997, Pam Starr created this partnership to capture the essence of terroir in her wines – the soil and environment in which the fruit ripens. The Crocker Vineyard, where grapes have been grown since the 1870’s, is located on the south side of St. Helena, bordered by Mills and Dowdell lanes. The most celebrated Bordeaux varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc are grown in varying soils that gradually change as the terrain gently slopes towards the Napa River. So far, 9 acres have been successfully replanted using a variety of rootstocks and clonal selections that best match the soil.

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
