Mother Nature was very kind to us in 2010, providing a mellow and dry summer. The majority of the fruit in this vintage came from our vineyards in Knights Valley, which is on the border of Sonoma and Napa counties. In our opinion, this is one of the best regions for growing Sauvignon Blanc in Sonoma County, and the Knights Valley fruit contributes the white peach that runs through this wine. The 2010 vintage resulted in a balanced wine full of citrus and pineapple guava.
Translucent, pale straw color.
Nose: An intensely perfumed fresh bouquet of bright pink grapefruit and passion fruit combined with tropical notes of pineapple guava.
Flavor: Emulating the nose, the palate of bright grapefruit and lime flavor carries a hint of dry oregano and white peach accompanied by a soft, round mouth feel resulting in a medium bodied, fresh food-friendly wine.
Greenish yellow. Assertive grapefruit and green apple aromas are complicated by lemongrass and white flowers. Dry, bracing and surprisingly concentrated, offering firm citrus and orchard fruit flavors, nervy minerality and a long, racy finish. A grown-up, low-fat, sharply focused style of the variety that I find utterly captivating. This is bottled under screwcap.
