Wonderful grassy aromas with hints of melon and citrus. The flavors matched the aromas, with strong grass and citrus flavors. Light, crisp, and clean, with tingling acidity. A very good SB.

Crisp and tart like a good Sauvignon Blanc should be, and dry, with a blast of fruity flavor. Floods the palate with lemons, limes, grapefruits and green apples, and richer notes of guava and passionfruit. - S.H.

Winemaker's Notes:

This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of vineyards from very different microclimates in Sonoma County. Grapes grown in the cooler Carneros district contribute spice and acidity for excellent food compatibility while the warmer-grown Bennett Valley grapes Sauvignon Musque contribute lush fruit flavors reminiscent of melon honeysuckle and grapefruit. These flavors are enhanced by the creamy richness of fermentation and aging on the yeast ("sur lie"). This wine finishes with a clean crisp acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups salads and shellfish dishes. VINEYARDS: 100% Sauvignon Blanc: 29% Hi-Vista (Carneros); 27% Gieb Ranch (Sonoma Valley); 23% Judge Family (Bennett Valley); 21% Grossi (Sonoma Coast) HARVEST DATES: September 5th through October 1st 2008 SUGAR AT HARVEST: 24.1 degrees Brix average FERMENTATION: 50% tank fermented in stainless steel and aged sur-lie; 33% fermented in 130 to 650 gallon oak casks; 17% fermented in oak puncheons AGING / COOPERAGE: aged on the yeast ("sur-lie") for 3 months ALCOHOL: 13.5% by volume ACIDITY: TA = 0.80 g/100ml; pH = 3.10 PRODUCTION: 2379 cases (12 x 750ml) RELEASE DATE: June 1st 2009
