    About This Wine

    Our 2011 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc reflects all the positive attributes of a cool growing season. It’s wonderfully fresh and aromatic, with characteristic bright scents of pink grapefruit, gooseberry, melon and green apple. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with rich, vibrant citrus (grapefruit and kiwi), honeydew melon, spice and mineral flavors balanced by excellent acidity and a long, refreshing, mineral/chalky finish reminiscent of a fine White Bordeaux. A superb apèritif wine, our 2011 vintage is also wonderfully versatile with food, especially salads and lighter seafood, poultry and pasta dishes. Enjoy it over the next 3-5 years.
