Winemaker Notes

Upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavors of melon, passionfruit and crisp acidity.

Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes or summer salads.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Decant this wine to get past its initial reduction and you'll find a generous, citrus-scented sauvignon, its aromas ranging from Kaffir lime to fresh tangerine. The reduction shifts toward flintness, adding an edge for roast scallops or any roast fish. Best Buy.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
