The aromas are fresh and enticing with bright citrus layers supported by subtle undertones of papaya and green mango. On the palate, the tropical notes come to the forefront with rich, lush layers of guava, passion fruit and lychee, as well as hints of herbs and lemon zest.

Partially barrel-fermented with a slight addition of Semillon, the mid-weight 2012 Sauvignon Blanc possesses attractive fig, lemon blossom, caramelized grapefruit and orange marmalade notes. This delicate but intense, stylish Sauvignon should provide considerable pleasure over the next several years.”,,,

Wine maker notes
This is a classic expression of our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of grapefruit, lemon curd and nectarine, as well as rich, underlying notes of vanilla and homemade marshmallow. A smooth-textured entry gives way to tingling acidity that shows off the citrus elements beautifully, while adding length to flavors of cantaloupe, Asian pear and Fuji apple. The finish is persistent and refreshing with long mineral notes.
