Eagle Eye Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc 2007 has structure and complexity like no other. The color is a beautiful pale straw with aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit and hints of lime. lively tropical citrus flavors fill your mouth on that first sip. The mid palate is clean and satisfying. A long crisp finish with lingering citrus will complete your taste sensation. This wine pairs perfectly with soft cheeses, fish and seafood dishes, grilled vegetables, chicken and those ripe red berry fruits of summer.

We are Bill & Roxanne Wolf, Napa Valley growers of world class red wine grapes and Italian varietal olives for oil. We are also Wine Institute Educational Trust trained wine tasters, wine grape and olive growers, artist, culinary professional and owners of the Eagle Eye wine brand and AlphaWOLF Vineyard & Olive Ranch. The Eagle Eye brand was created to make small quantities of high quality wine from the Napa Valley that we are able to blend, with our winemaker, to create fruit forward, approachable young blends that are affordable and age worthy. We want the consumer to count upon and recognize the Eagle Eye brand as great wine for a great price. Roxanne has a strong sales and marketing background coming from her 25+ years as a real estate broker. During those years she refined her painting style. In 1998 she chose to start painting full time. Her style of painting moved from hard edge to whimsical. She then added nature and wine to her bold, colorful style. Her use of bright colors and her trademark of eagle heads on human bodies led us to develop our Eagle Eye wine brand where we have used a different one of her paintings for each wine varietal we make. She not only paints, but she also designs all of our labels for our wine and olive oil lines. Bill has worked for 30+ years in the food service industry. He was trained and worked as a chef in his early years and progressed to Vice President of operations when he left the ARAmark Corp. in 1996. "My father taught me organic farming as a youngster in a small community outside of Pittsburgh PA. My passion for food and wine and my desire to grow led me to my dream of growing grapes and olives and making them into wine and oil. In 1999 we purchased our ranch and have been working on our dreams to come true ever since." Read less

The nose greets me with a load of green apples and peaches, and a sweet honeysuckle factor that I am definitely a fan of. Flavors of apple and citrus dominate on the palate, and the finish blasts me with a lovely burst of tart fruit. This wine has a nice crisp finish and some good acidity, making it an excellent food wine. I personally enjoyed this wine with saffron risotto and the acidity cut through the creamy risotto very nicely.

This would be the model! Great aromas of pear, lemon zest and honeysuckle (with some light notes of fresh grass) are dominating the delicious aromas of this wine. The taste is lightly buttered lemons, but only lightly, it's not over-the-top creamy, which is nice because the acidity of this wine is firm enough to pair with most any meal and yet not astringent so it can be enjoyed on it's own. Recommended!

On the nose I got notes of canned pear juice and honey. Tastes like watered down apple juice (this is a good thing!), honey, lemon zest and a nice amount of oak. A balanced wine sure to pair well with whatever you desire.

Very satisfying. What you want from a Sauv. Blanc. Bight, acidic, classic grassy notes. Ripe fruit. A great food wine.
