Tasting Notes:

European style meets California sunshine! Aged 6 months sur lie, this is a full bodied, rich, floral, and bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc that has no new oak or malolatic influences competing with the stunning complexity of the fruit. The flavors of Meyer lemon zest, orange blossoms, white peaches, apricot, and grapefruit define this clean, bold, white wine that is at once rich and creamy, crisp and dry, and made from 100% estate-grown, certified organic grapes. This is the winemaker’s favorite white wine in the Napa Valley!

Vineyard Notes:

2011 was another record cool year here in the valley. We had a wet winter and spring, and saw rainfall continuing well into mid-June. For all varietals the fruit set at unusually low levels, and just as would be expected, the small crop produced wines with great intensity and complexity. The summer in Napa Valley was the coldest on record, and the harvest was the latest that anyone can remember. Generally terrific quality at lower alcohols for those of us who were able to harvest ahead of the early autumn rains.
