2017 Sauvignon Blanc

It is rare that we add a new varietal wine to our portfolio. The decision to add Sauvignon Blanc, just a few years ago, came about when we realized how many of us were enjoying "SB" wines from around the world and how confident we were that it would thrive in our estate vineyard. We hope that you enjoy this fruity and bright expression of the variety, a true reflection of our unique climate in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley

The Vintage

Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Harvest started early and was nearly complete before the wildfires started in early October. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.

The Wine

This delicious summertime wine has aromas of green apple, passion fruit and white peach with complementary flavors of grapefruit and guava. The palate features crisp acidity.

Food Affinities

A perfect wine for light summer fare; serve with ceviche, shrimp, fish tacos, chicken salad or sushi. The wine is sassy enough to stand up to the bold flavors of Greek or Mexican food as long as the lemon juice is used lightly in all recipes.
