Bright and refreshing, its mouthful of passion fruit, grapefruit, herb and lemon-lime flavors dancing around on the palate, zingy yet balanced. An effusive, racy white for drinking now through 2002.

Siverado's super, dry, crisp 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Ranch reveals honeyed grapefruit, fig, melon, and Thai lemon grass notes in its fresh, medium-bodied personality. It is ideal for drinking over the next year.

Lots of grass, citrus, smoke and hay in this nice wine. Has strong grassy flavors; dry and citrusy-bright, but softened by buttery notes and 6% Sèmillon. Pretty and very elegant.

Tangy and intense, with a focused beam of lime skin, wet hay, melon and fig flavors that extend through a lively, vanilla-tinged finish.

Lively, with very good intensity to the green and yellow apple, lemon-lime and floral tones. Concentration lingers, with a tangy dried apple flavor. Drink now.

The lovely-scented 2006 Sauvignon Blanc Miller Ranch exhibits loads of fig, melon, and honeyed grapefruit, followed by a dry, crisp finish. Enjoy it over the next year.

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 SAUVIGNON BLANCTechnical Information: Vintage notes:Flooding kicked off the New Year in Napa Valley, which made for great news headlines, but did little damage to dormant vines, as seasonal cover crops stabilized soils in vineyards and rain continued late into spring. Gray skies and cool, wet weather delayed bud break by a few weeks, but also kept frost at bay. By early June, the sun came out and vines began to bloom and set fruit. In mid-July, a record-setting heat wave lasted about ten days. Whatever grapes may have been sunburned were removed during the normal post-veraison cluster thinning. Seasonal and somewhat cooler weather returned in August. The mild weather pattern continued throughout harvest, allowing for moderately paced and deliberate ripening and a long harvest period. Winemaking notes:Average harvest sugar was 23.3° Brix. To retain and enhance the crisp, fresh fruit character of Sauvignon Blanc, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 50- 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The wine did not undergo any malolatic fermentation. Analysis:Alcohol, 13.7 percent; titratable acidity, 5.95 grams per liter; pH, 3.25; residual sugar, 0.10 percent. Tasting notes:Pale yellow with a green tinge to the color. Flint, Meyer lemon and grapefruit citrus aromas, fresh citrus and green apple fruit flavors with a crisp acidity, lingering flavors through the finish.
