  • Vintage Report

    • Sauvignon Blanc is so very fun to grow in the Napa Valley because it is much more expressive on the vine than any other grape, meaning that you can taste the fruit off the vine and that will be the flavor of the wine. 2018 was a very classic Napa Valley vintage, warm days and cool nights, which is perfect for Sauvignon Blanc.

  • Tasting Notes

    • The intoxicating aroma of this wine draws your nose deeper and deeper into the glass with hints of fig, lychee, kiwi, sage and lemongrass. The pallet is quite expansive for a wine with this kind of acidity. The flavors offer pear, lemongrass, toasted pine nuts and fig. The 10% addition of Semillon adds depth and complexity and a nice hint of fullness and oily texture. You can still taste the wine a full minute after your last sip!
