Reflecting the stellar quality of our estate vineyard, the 2009 Rutherford Estate Sauvignon Blanc reveals pure aromas and flavors of ripe honeydew, white peach, citrus, apricot and tropical fruit. Hints of caramel, vanilla and nutmeg add layers of complexity. This beautifully balanced wine combines creaminess with a fresh acidity that dances on the palate. Sur lie barrel aging enhances the rich, silky texture and adds nuances of lemon custard to the fruity finish. Our favorite pairings include goat cheese bruschetta, seafood salads, grilled fish, and chicken with basil pesto.
