Blackstone Winery Sauvignon Blanc Central Coast Winemaker Select 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2010 Blackstone Winemaker’s Select Sauvignon Blanc is full of lemon and lime aromas and flavors with freshly cut grass and floral notes in the nose. The flavors follow suit accompanied by a nice, acidic backbone, the wine’s acidity and citrus tones making it a very food friendly wine. Try pairing it with grilled fish, seafood, pasta, or crab.

Sonoma County has always been Blackstone’s home and inspiration. Since our beginning we’ve established a reputation for consistently delivering balanced, reliable wines of uncompromising quality. For nearly 20 years, we’ve cultivated close ties with grape growers and viticulturists throughout Sonoma County. Both our inspiration and our home, Sonoma remains the heart of Blackstone. You’ll find the region’s signature style blended into every bottle. As a grape-growing region, Sonoma County is like no other place on earth. With redwood forests, benchlands, hillsides, and nearly 80 miles of majestic coastline, Sonoma offers a wide variety of microclimates, soils, and terrain. This uniquely diverse region supports several different grape varieties but is best known for its lush Merlots and full-bodied Cabernets. Sonoma County is a designated American Viticultural Area (AVA) made up of thirteen distinctly different World-Class wine growing appellations. Each appellation and each vineyard within that appellation contributes something special - it is from this vibrant flavor palate that complex, expressive wines emerge. At Blackstone, we find Sonoma County inspiring. Each different AVA contributes something unique and special to the final blend. Our Sonoma Reserve wines, in particular, exemplify Sonoma’s signature style, and help set the standard carried through to our Winemaker’s Select wines. “Sonoma County is one of the most amazing places in the world to live and make wine,” observes Winemaker Gary Sitton. “There’s no place like it. The immense diversity—from the coastline to the mountains, valleys, and rivers—still leaves me in awe. For me, tapping into this range of growing conditions is fundamental to making beautifully expressive wines from Sonoma County.” From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America’s favorite Merlot. Over the years, the same passion for consistent, balanced wines has expanded to new varieties bearing Blackstone’s trademark label. Our Winemaker’s Select wines are sourced from premier growing regions throughout California, each meticulously selected to contribute certain nuances to the final blend. Drawing from the best parcels in the same areas year after year ensures Winemaker’s Select wines maintain the consistency that is Blackstone’s heritage. Our signature style and quality is elevated in our Sonoma Reserve wines, which are sourced from Sonoma’s world-class vineyards. Each vineyard site contributes distinct characteristics that uniquely define the region. Through it all, Blackstone has stayed true to the approach inspired by our Sonoma roots - to craft wines that complement food and any occasion in which you celebrate the things in life you can count on.

Bright light straw hue, aromas of green water and lime; tart, racy acidity of citrus and herbs and citrus leading to a moderate finish without fruit.

Another winner from Blackstone, at $12 a bottle this is excellent QPR. Nice aromas of white grapefruit, some hay, and some lemon pith. Palate is smooth and grapefruity with a hint of lemon and a juicy finish. Would be terrific with seafood, and I just had it with asparagus carbonara and it worked very well--didn't clash with the asparagus at all.

Light and fresh with good texture, acidity and length. Winemaker Gary Sitton says the wine offers 'racy acidity and a crisp, clean finish.
