The 2018 vintage is best described as fresh, vibrant and patient. A mild and well-tempered spring led into a harvest that was later than usual, leaving more ripe fruit flavors in finished wines. Our Organically Certified Sauvignon Blanc is proof of this fact. It continues to be made with our tried and true technique of whole-cluster pressing, cold stainless steel fermentation and five months of Sur Lie aging. 40% of this wine can be traced back to its roots in Rutherford, while the remaining 60% comes from the lower-elevation, eastern foothills of Howell Mountain. These two Napa Valley vineyards come together post-fermentation to create a beautifully balanced and complex Sauvignon Blanc. Elegant white-gold color with a delicate texture shows the complex and refined characters that can be achieved with our Sur Lie aging of Sauvignon Blanc. Meyer lemon, peach and stone-fruit are the most accessible scents and flavors this wine has to offer. The valley floor offers guava and pineapple while higher elevation fruit lends itself to lemon zest and yellow blossoms. Layers deep, more tropical notes of passion fruit and kiwi can be found mixed with a crushed-rock minerality. This summer we will be found enjoying this wine with oysters on Tomales Bay or with a seafood salad while sharing at a friend’s house.
