Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Sauvignon Blanc opens with alluring aromas of melon, boxwood, gooseberry, grapefruit, citrus and guava. A full and lively palate of white peach and tropical fruit transitions to citrus, lemon rind and lemon grass balanced with orange blossom notes. This wine has bright acidity that gives way to a lingering, crisp finish. Winemaker Joe Shirley recommends pairing this Sauvignon Blanc with sea bass lightly drizzled with olive oil and sea salt, or tomato and cucumber gazpacho topped with basil, dill and goat cheese.

Vineyard Notes
We meticulously selected fruit from several sub-appellations in the warmer regions of Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Calistoga, Rutherford and Oak Knoll to better tease out the vibrant aromas and flavors that make this varietal so appealing. Napa’s warm days and cool nights are ideal for promoting Sauvignon Blanc’s beautiful and vibrant aromatics, as well as its balanced acidity.
Production Notes
The 2018 growing season offered superlative growing conditions with abundant rain at the beginning of the year. Plenty of sunshine and moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer led up to a harvest with great crop quality.
Winemaker Notes
After harvest, the fruit was immediately de-stemmed and sent to the press. A cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks followed to better preserve the bright and crisp Sauvignon Blanc fruit characteristics.
