    Winemaker Notes

    This is our first-ever Dynamite Sauvignon Blanc. It is crafted to emphasize the herbal and fruit flavors that match so well with food. This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in Medocino and Napa counties,and Sémillon from San Luis Obispo County.A moderate marine-influenced growing season and rain-free harvest season produced perfectly ripe fruit, creating a wine with a full, round mouthfeel, and aromas of melon with a hint of fresh cut grass. We fermented 82 percent of the wine in French oak barrels to give it complexity and 18 percent in stainless steel tanks to enhance the grape's bright fruit lavors. Try this Sauvignon Blanc with fresh blue mussels sautéed with shallots, garlic,parsley, tarragon, oregano, and thyme, then cooked with white wine and lemon juice and served with hot sourdough bread.

    We use the name Dynamite as a reminder of the origins of our winery and its vineyards, planted on the steep rocky slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains between Sonoma and Napa Valleys. In the early days, dynamite was frequently used to blast stubborn rocks from the vine rows. -Jeff Baker,Winemaker

    Dynamite Vineyards, North Coast, California
    With its name inspired by the method that workers used to create the original vineyard site on the rocky slopes of the Sonoma Valley, Dynamite Vineyards captured the public’s imagination when its 1991 vintage was released. More importantly, with their full-flavored character, approachable style and unbeatable value, Dynamite Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were soon winning awards and fans.

    As consumer demand grew for these impressive wines, Dynamite Vineyards gradually expanded its vineyard sources to include grapes grown throughout the North Coast (Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake Counties), primarily in mountain vineyards. In order to support its continued growth, Dynamite will soon move to a new facility close to vineyards in Lake County’s highly regarded Red Hills growing area. The colorful Dynamite Vineyards labels change each vintage while the wine maintains consistent quality and superb value.

    North Coast

    View all wine

    Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

    Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

    Sauvignon Blanc

    View all wine

    A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. However, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and here is most important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand, California, Australia and parts of northeastern Italy. Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon blanc.

    In the Glass

    From its homeland In Bordeaux, winemakers prefer to blend it with Sémillon to produce a softer, richer style. In the Loire Valley, it expresses citrus, flint and smoky flavors, especially from in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. Marlborough, New Zealand often produces a pungent and racy version, often reminiscent of cut grass, gooseberry and grapefruit. California produces fruity and rich oak-aged versions as well as snappy and fresh, Sauvignon blancs, which never see any oak.

    Perfect Pairings

    The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor lends it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood and mild Asian cuisine. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like artichokes or asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it can be paired with more complex seafood and chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is the 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 (an herbaceous aromatic compound) inherent to each member of the family.
