Winemaker Notes

The bright, shimmering, green-gold hue of this Sauvignon Blanc is a visual overture to a striking personality. Its enticing aroma is highly perfumed with honeysuckle, citrus blossom, white rose and gardenia. Honeydew melon, nectarine, ripe Rainier cherry, tangerine, Kaffir lime and summer hay add complexity, along with hints of sweet oak and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, vibrant acidity is finely balanced with a rich, creamy mouthfeel creating a unique textural experience — reminiscent of a refreshing blood orange sorbet. The finish is broad and lingers with sweet pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest.

The winemakers good friend Ann Marie Montecuollo was inspired by an original Sam Sifton recipe

to devise a delicious Roast Chicken Provençal. The sweet Meyer lemons and the herbs

make it a perfect pairing with our Sauvignon Blanc. Serve with brown rice, crusty French bread and a green salad.

Critical Acclaim

TP 94
Tasting Panel

Lush and layered with notes of pineapple, peach, and citrus, this is always one of the defnitive Sauvignons of California. Rich, creamy, and balanced, it shows abundant notes of vanilla before the long fnish.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Bright and spicy up front, then long, suave and leisurely in the end, this is a layered sauvignon blanc, its depth of flavor apparent below some green-onion reduction. With air, the fruit tones of sweet quince and baked apple emerge, contrasting talc-like acidity. Give it a shake in a decanter, and a bowl of buttery pasta tossed with peas.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
A perennially popular and well-made wine, this vintage is no exception, shining in concentrated, layers of rich, bold flavor. A sweetness of peach and vanilla complement a more exotic element of rose petal and black licorice.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Peach cobbler, ripe melon and marmalade notes are elegant, supple and detailed in this white, with spice and black tea accents. A refreshing thread of acidity keeps the flavors fresh without interfering with the elegance. Drink now.

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.
