Sonoma Coast Vineyards Laguna Vista Sauvignon Blanc 2013
This wine will make an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled fish and seafood, particularly oysters, crab, and lobster along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. The winemaker's inspiration for this wine comes from the unique opportunity to marry old and new world winemaking practices resulting in a truly distinctive wine.
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Musque
A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.
Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.
