Cep Vineyards Hopkins Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Pale, green-tinged straw. High-pitched aromas of lime zest and pungent herbs, with a suave floral nuance gaining strength with air. Racy and precise, offering bright citrus fruit flavors that give way to deeper melon and pear on the back end. Finishes dry, tight and long, with resonating spiciness and impressive clarity. (May 2012)

In 1979, the first vines were planted and our 19th century barn was converted into a state-of-the-art winery. Read less
