Winemaker Notes

In 2004, we have chosen to use what is sometimes referred to as the most flamboyant of Sauvignon Blanc clones, 100% Musque clone, in order to accentuate the fresh combinations of tropical, citrus, floral and even exotic characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of kiwi, key lime, tangerine, apricot and honeysuckle accented by a slight mineral component and crisp acidity. An enticing, rich texture adds to the depth and complexity of the wine. This wine definitely lives up to our mantra of "Grass is for Cows."

Fortress Vineyards, California
Fortress Vineyards Winery Image
Fortress Vineyards is Fess Parker's new family wine venture built around a unique vineyard site, nearly 20 years of grape growing experience and a singular pursuit of creating a Sauvignon Blanc that rivals the world's best. At Fortress Vineyards, the focus is on one wine only – Sauvignon Blanc - 100% Musque clone. The "magic and mystique of Musque" produces a truly elegant Sauvignon Blanc reminiscent of a fine white Graves 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.

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.
