Winemaker Notes

The bright tropical fruit, lemon-lime and mineral expression in this Sauvignon Blanc comes from grapes grown on their Rutherford estate and other outstanding neighboring vineyards. They captured these enticing flavors by whole-cluster pressing, followed by fermenting and aging the wine sur lie (on the yeast) in small, stainless steel vessels. A splash of Semillon enhances the silky texture, while a cork-free closure assures freshness and consistent quality.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the Wildwood vineyard, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford (100% Sauvignon Blanc) was barrel fermented and aged in 23% new oak and the rest in stainless steel for five months. It opens with gregarious note of ripe peaches, passion fruit and pink grapefruit with touches of lime zest and wet slate. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers mouth-filling citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a very frisky finish.

Very fresh gooseberry, grass, lemon and passion fruit with just a whiff of vanilla from oak. I love the balance of creaminess and crisp acidity on the palate, the finish long and energetic. Drink now. Screw cap.

Rutherford Wine

Napa Valley, California

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.

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.
