Tasting Notes

Fresh aromas of fig, lychee, pear and cantaloupe are accented by citrus and white flower. The clean smell of wet pebbles adds a vibrant dimension to the wine. The palate is structural and textured, balanced front to back. The addition of Semillon provides weight and roundness and will, over time, broaden the palate. Lovely to drink now, but has the potential to age. Enjoy with seafood and lighter fare.

The 2014 vintage was the warmest on record in Napa Valley and our earliest harvest in 20 years. Late winter rains and warm spring temperatures brought early budbreak. Bloom was early and there was good cluster set. Typical warm summer heat brought the Sauvignon Blanc to maturity a few weeks earlier than normal. At harvest, maturation levels were ideal, crop size normal and quality was very high. We finished harvest with the red Bordeaux varieties by mid-October.
