Our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is an alluring, expressive wine embodying the facets of our four estate vineyards. The blend of mineral-driven fruit from the Sonoma County vineyards and the lush tropical aromas derived from the Napa Valley vineyards develops complexity in the glass. Hints of white gold and straw illuminate this wine. The bouquet bursts with mango, guava and gardenias, while the sculpted palate focuses citrus and minerality into lime zest and wet slate. The bright attack, rich full body and refreshingly long finish are redolent of citrus acidity. The perfumed tropical notes stem from the dynamic terroir we work with. This is a medium weight wine to be paired with a variety of foods from an hors d’oeuvre of zesty gazpacho to a creamy seafood risotto. It will be a pleasant accompaniment to any meal. Our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is a wine to be enjoyed throughout the year.

The 2015 vintage can be characterized as an intense, textural expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The growing season was the warmest since the start of the drought in 2012.
