Terroir-driven wines are the new green. Let nature take its course, and then handle the wine as minimally as possible. This is the philosophy of the Tamayo family, owners of a vineyard in Napa Valley and a winery and vineyards in Contra Costa County. Their Sauvignon Blanc is a classic example. All grass, peach, and zing, the wine shows no evidence of being staged to get a better price, as many homes are when they are put on the market. The family’srecent releases in addition to this Sauvignon Blanc include a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, Contra Costa Syrah, Oak Knoll Napa Valley Chardonnay, a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and a Late Disgorged Brut Sparkling Wine from the 1998 vintage. Bright, straw yellow and lightly viscous, this wine has textbook vibrant aromas of grass, asparagus, tarragon, and fresh peppery basil. On the palate it is bold and at first herbaceous with notes of vine-ripened tomato and basil leaves. Then a back note of pear and white peach kicks in. The wine is round and soft with low acid until the sweet-tart finish.

This crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc has notes of sun-soaked fruit reminiscent of long summer days. The citrus and tropical flavors are delightfully complex yet the extended sur-lie ageing endows this quaffer with a pleasing palate impression. From start to finish, this textbook Napa Sauvignon Blanc generously displays it's Oakville heritage. A completely delicious white that renders a mouthwatering smile with every sip!
