Adobe Road Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

About This Wine: A vibrant balance of acidity, this wine has a fresh green apple mouthfeel, followed by layers of caramel and vanilla. Underneath these layers lies notes of pumpkin and nutmeg spices. This wine is the perfect complement to a warm summer day. Kick your feet up and enjoy a full glass!<br/><br/> Winemaking: Picked in early morning and then rushed straight to press. Whole cluster, cold pressed directly to stainless steel fermenatation. Barrel aged in neutral oak for six months.<br/><br/> About The Winery: Adobe Road Winery is owned by renowned sportscar racer and entrepreneur Kevin Buckler and his wife, Debra. Adobe Road Winery produces award winning Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Zinfandel and Dessert Wines exclusively from Sonoma and Napa County sources. The tasting room is located in Petaluma, California. In 1995 Kevin founded The Racer’s Group (TRG) and grew it into an internationally prominent manufacturer and distributor of performance Porsche parts, while simultaneously building a career as a successful endurance sportscar racer and team owner. Kevin’s accomplishments as a driver include class wins at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2002) and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans (2002), an overall win at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (2003), and the title of Porsche World Cup Champion in 2002. As a team owner, Kevin has directed the growth of The Racer’s Group into an internationally-acclaimed racing team.<br/><br/> With friends, the Bucklers started making “garage wine” which, after prodding from enthusiastic friends, started commercially bottling under the Adobe Road label in 1999. Through Kevin’s good connections, he has acquired grapes from some very prestigious vineyards, which he handcrafts into extremely limited-production wines. The awards have followed. With the goal of producing exceptional wines by hand-crafting small lots of red varietals exclusively from Sonoma and Napa Counties, the Bucklers have dedicated themselves to seeing their vision through to reality, and the results are paying off.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Varietals:</strong> Sauvignon Blanc<br/><br/> <strong>Appellation:</strong> Dry Creek Valley, Greene Vineyard<br/><br/> <strong>Release:</strong> May 2010<br/><br/> <strong>Bottled:</strong> May 2009<br/><br/> <strong>Production:</strong> 475cases<br/><br/> <strong>Analysis:</strong> 14.1%<br/><br/>

Great balance of acidity in this wine with fresh green apples and notes of freshly cut grass and dry hay. Lemon rind. Very refreshing! Very nice. - Tasted at Sonoma Tasting Room Feb 2011
