Winemaker Notes

Crisp acidity is at the forefront of our 2005 Sauvignon Blanc, followed by refreshing flavors of citrus, gooseberry and a hint of kiwi. Made to be consumed upon release, this is a wine that is delicious on its own, and will also pair well with a variety of dishes, including grilled spiced chicken, steamed fish, and vegetable quiche.

We fermented the grapes for our Moon Mountain Vineyard 2005 Sauvignon Blanc in both stainless steel (66%) and French oak (33%). The wine then underwent sur-lie aging for five months, with batonnage every two weeks. Malolactic fermentation was arrested to retain the crisp and refreshing natural grape acidity.

Moon Mountain Vineyard , , California
Moon Mountain
High in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western side of Mt. Veeder, more than 1,000 feet above the Sonoma Valley, Moon Mountain Vineyard offers some of the most difficult winegrowing conditions in California. The steep south-facing slopes, punctuated by volcanic rock outcroppings, consist of thin, well-drained soils derived from volcanic ash and lava. Situated well above the fog line, the vineyard receives generous sunshine late into the afternoon. This combination of frugal soils and warm, sunny microclimate stresses the vines to produce rich rewards: small crops of superbly concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes.

Organic farming keeps the vines in balance and healthy, while enhancing the grapes' flavors. Harvested at full maturity, the grapes receive meticulous care in the winery, including slow aging in small oak barrels in mountainside caves and careful blending to achieve mouth-filling flavors of black cherry and currant fruit, complemented by subtle spice and toast complexity.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
