Tom owns over a hundred acres of vines in Northern California, as well as managing 500 hundred acres of some of the finest boutique vineyards in the valley.

Wine Tasting NotesVery tropical, ruby red grapefruit and bright lime with gooseberry and fig aromas. Balanced mineral finish with a hint of melon. Crisp, Racy, yet Elegant. A perfect restaurant wine with a Napa pedigree.

Our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc displays delicious honeydew melon aromas, followed by brightlemon zest and a hint of thyme. A ripemouthfeel is enhanced withmoremelon and refreshingcitrus notes. The wine is wonderfully well-centered and well-balanced by crisp acidity. Verylimited, less than 1,200 cases bottled.
