Winemaker Notes

The estate fruit brings tropical aromas of guava and mango with white peach, and the slightest hint of honeydew melon. Perfectly ripe flavors follow true to the aromas while layers of guava, mango, limon and crushed stone minerality dance on the palate. The mouthfeel is tactile and lush while savory natural acidity keep the flavors going for a long finish.

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc from Crocker and Starr will give a top Pouilly-Fumé a run for its money. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc that was mostly barrel fermented and aged in barrel and concrete eggs, it offers terrific green citrus, lime peel, liquid rock and an exotic lychee-like quality that develops with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, crisp, chiseled and elegant, it’s the real deal.

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.

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.
