From the Winery
Brilliant pale gold in color with enticing aromas of jasmine, white peach, tropical mango and fresh-cut lemon. Opening with a juicy acidity, the palate is richly weighted, showing layers of pineapple, green melon, and a crisp, refreshing grapefruit finish.
The crisp, clean acidity and lush fruit of this 2019 Sauvignon Blanc will nicely complement most lighter preparations of fish, but it has us yearning for a big bowl of salmon poke. It also pairs beautifully with summer afternoons, good friends and good conversation.
This wine is produced from grapes grown on our Oakville Estate, as well as from select grower vineyards representing a range of microclimates in Napa Valley. The warmer areas give us Sauvignon Blanc with melon and citrus characteristics in both aroma and flavor. The cooler areas provide fruit with a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness and balances the rich creaminess from sur lie aging. The Semillon is grown on our Oakville Estate, and it contributes roundness and weight to the mouthfeel.
“THIS WINE HAS A CREAMY, VISCOUS ENTRY ADORNED IN JASMINE. LEMON PITH, GRAPEFRUIT AND TANGERINE PRESENT AS LUSH AND LENGTHY ON THE PALATE, BALANCED BY FRESH, PERSISTENT ACIDITY.”
