Beautifully expressive with tropical fruit aromatics. The palate is round and refreshing and swarming with flavors of passion fruit, papaya and has a long lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes
This is textbook Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. With the ideal growing season that we had in 2014, this Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully expressive with tropical fruit aromatics. The palate is round and refreshing and swarming with flavors of passion fruit, papaya and has a long lingering finish.

A wine that you won’t want to put down, drink as an aperitif or pair with your favorite creamy cheeses like a Havarti or Goat Cheese.

Production Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc is planted in sandy soils along the Napa River at our estate vineyard in Rutherford, one of the most heralded AVAs in Napa Valley. In addition to its historical importance, Rutherford is a premier region for luxury-class, Bordeaux-variety wines. Winemaker Patrick Foley harvested the grapes in the morning hours on September 2, 2014. The juice was then stainless steel fermented and aged in one of our new concrete egg tanks.
Vineyard Notes
2014 was a fabulous vintage, giving us wines of both finesse and concentration. We brought in a bountiful crop of very tasty fruit. Overall the weather was nearly ideal, with conditions allowing the grapes to have a lot of acidity without being over ripe. The Sauvignon Blanc reached full maturity - just around 7.1 tons per acre – a relatively easy and high quality vintage!
