Napa Valley’s 2014 vintage is the third in that memorable string of three outstanding vintages, and its unique quality is expressed in this offering of Sauvignon Blanc that is so highly regarded from our vineyard. Leaning on my experience in the vineyard and past successes, I chose to blend in 11% of our estate grown Semillon for added complexity with unique flavor and textural components. Your first impression is the brilliant gold color accenting the youth, purity and appeal of the wine. There is a slight varietal hint of fresh herbs and spice on the nose accented by the scent of pink grapefruit and a touch of dried rose petals. On the palate we are treated to a bright cacophony of lime and other fresh citrus coupled with a distinct oyster shell minerality and a touch of white peach for richness. The opulent texture of the palate carries forward to the long and layered finish accented by balanced acidity leaving you wanting for another glass.
