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