Aromas of tropical fruit; kiwis and pineapple followed seamlessly with the invigorating scents of gardenia, and Meyer lemon. The palate awakens the senses with flavors of crisp green apples and lemon meringue accompanied by mouthwatering acidity. These classic flavors are balanced by softness brought by more time in neutral oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes: Everyone knows the renowned Beckstoffer legacy for their opulent and famous Cabernets. Now, for the very first time, Beckstoffer is introducing a vineyard designate Sauvignon Blanc and Eleven Eleven is among the first Melrose Vineyard clients to use this classification. This wine is explosive and showcases the power and freshness of this Rutherford terroir. – Kirk Venge, Winemaker
