"Napa Valley Style" is captured in this Sauvignon Blanc that is grown and hand tended in the Crocker Vineyard and the Hyde Las Trancas Vineyard. Fresh and forward aromas of spring bouquet flowers, freesia, lime and nectarine. The entry bursts with ripe peaches/nectarines, layered with lime and minerals. Crisp and rich with a long finish– capturing the alluring characters. Cheers to Sauvignon Blanc!

Vintage 2011 was one of our most challenging ever. A very wet winter and spring continued with rainfall into mid-June, with more than a third above normal rainfall. A long, cooler-than-average growing season followed. Sauvignon Blanc found the latest harvest start in our memory. In spite of all these challenges, we were extremely pleased with the quality of fruit harvested in 2011. Although yields were very low, we were rewarded for our efforts with rich, concentrated, intense flavors.
100% Sauvignon, 100% whole cluster pressed. Barrel fermented in 96% stainless steel barrels, 4% new French oak barrels. Aged on the lees for increased richness and intensity until late March.
