Field Stone Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite aromatic on the nose with immediate aromas of pineapple, melon, and key lime pie framed with a subtle gooseberry note. Broad and a little softer than I’d like to see, this none the less fills the mouth with a nice blend of berry flavors that recall a blend of gooseberry and unripe strawberries layered over lightly creamy flavors of melon that gains a touch of wood spice on the rather long finish. A bit of an intense style but one with broad appeal. More of a food wine than a cocktail style of wine. 87pts

Field Stone Winery was founded in 1977 with its own celebrated estate vineyards dating back to 1894. It is owned and operated by John & Katrina Staten and their family. Praised by visitors for its hospitality and unique rustic beauty, the winery is a fascinating, small, underground facility carved into a picturesque oak knoll in the midst of its rolling vineyards in Sonoma County’s beautiful Alexander Valley. Known primarily for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and century-old vine Petite Sirah, Field Stone is also recognized for its select, handcrafted quantities of other award-winning, low-production wines: Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rosé of Sangiovese and Vintage Port. We have also introduced our new Convivio companion wine, made from our Merlot and Cabernet, from which we donate a portion of the proceeds to Clinica Alianza, a nonprofit medical center serving farmworkers and their families in Sonoma County. Field Stone’s winery and vineyard estate is located conveniently on Highway 128, the key artery linking northern Sonoma County and Napa Valley (the winery is just seven miles from Healdsburg and fourteen miles from Calistoga). Its cozy and inviting underground tasting room is open from 10 to 5 seven days a week. Its picnic ground, under its spreading oaks, has been called “one of the best spots for a picnic with a vineyard view in the Alexander Valley” Read less
