  • This wine displays a delicate structure with aromas of citrus, honeydew melon and a hint of herbaceous. The delicate palate of citrus tangerine and grapefruit show a bright acidity that gracefully dances across the tongue. The sensation of freshness in flavor and balance leads to a long, succulent finish.

    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    This wine has very expressive aromas, the type we enjoy when the wine is in that early-ripe stage at harvest time. I find the wine is primarily dominated by floral and citrus tones on the nose, with hints of tropical fruit aromas that shine through. On the palate, the wine is bold and fresh, displaying a vibrant level of savory acidity which helps frame the wine front to back. The wine is medium bodied, well balanced and has a refreshing citrus finish. This wine should lend itself to a fairly wide range of pairings. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
    Production Notes
    The vineyard is owned by family friends and we have enjoyed the opportunity to make a small amount of wine with the fruit from their vineyard, with a varietal that we enjoy but are not currently growing ourselves. These grapes were harvested in the first week of September from the cooler Coombsville District in southern Napa. The fruit was in great shape and was displaying nice ripe characteristics at harvest time while retaining a nice balancing level of acid, keeping it lively. The grapeskins at harvest time were just transitioning into golden ripe, which is just where we like to see our Sauvignon Blanc when making it as a single varietal. The fruit was whole cluster pressed, then fermented in a small tank. After fermentation, the wine was racked to neutral oak barrels for 6 months aging prior to bottling. Drink Now through 2016.
