This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon “musque” clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of nectarine and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of kiwi, lime and grapefruit. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads and shellfish dishes.


Wine Enthusiast - 2016 Sonoma Coast Sauvignon Blanc - 90 pts

"From three cool-climate sites within the appellation, this is a floral, fruity wine with a zesty underbelly of acidity. Lemongrass, lemon peel and grapefruit flavors are the main event." - August 2017
