Our style of Sauvignon Blanc is designed to bring out the best in this regal varietal. It's highly floral, effusing scents of hibiscus, honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom. Notes of muskmelon, mango, papaya and guava widen the aroma, along with accents of white peach, nectarine and Meyer lemon. Hints of minerality, crème brûlée and toasted hazelnuts add even more sophistication. In the mouth, this wine is lush with good viscosity. This richness is balanced by sweet Ruby Red grapefruit, tangerine zest and lively acidity throughout. Our Sauvignon Blanc ages along with the best of those from Sancerre.

Wine EnthusiastMerry Edwards, known best for her Pinot Noir, says this variety is a comparative joy. She bolsters the wine with Sauvignon Musqué and oak aging to build a richly creamy and full expression, marked by moderate acidity. Lemon meringue, peach and vanilla flavors add to its viscosity and sultry power.

Wine AdvocateScented of fresh lemon, white grapefruit and mowed grass with a touch of sage, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is medium-bodied on the palate with a very good intensity of uncomplicated citrus and herbs flavors, finishing zesty.
