WINEMAKER'S NOTES
Our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from several distinct growing regions within the Napa Valley, including Oak Knoll, and Rutherford, each contributing a different expression of the varietal. This wine was fermented in a combination of neutral French oak (52%) and stainless steel tanks (48%). Our intent is to preserve and enhance the varietal nuances and textural complexity.

Color: pale straw, with brilliant clarity
Aroma: lime leaf, grapefruit, passion fruit, guava, ripe melon, orange blossom, slate and some background varietal herbal notes
Taste: crisp entry that leads to a full mid-palate with bright fruit flavors supported by generous natural acidity and layers of citrus, melon and passion fruit
