Winemaker Notes

Mother Nature was very kind to us in 2010,providing a mellow and dry summer. Themajority of the fruit in this vintage came fromour vineyards in Knights Valley, which is on theborder of Sonoma and Napa counties. In ouropinion, this is one of the best regions forgrowing Sauvignon Blanc in Sonoma County,and the Knights Valley fruit contributes thewhite peach that runs through this wine. The2010 vintage resulted in a balanced wine full ofcitrus and pineapple guava.

Critical Acclaim

TP 91
Tasting Panel

Lovely orange peel and blossom nose; silky and crisp with purity and great acid structure; juicy peach and lush texture; long and bright.

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.
