Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season was a bit of a roller-coaster with heavy winter rains leading to vigorous vine growth in spring. Bloom came early, in parallel with an eclectic range of springtime temperatures. Moderate early summer temperatures gave way to several heat waves throughout the summer and into fall, heightening the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes, and ushering in in a slightly early harvest.

Vineyard Notes
We sourced the fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc from a special vineyard in St. Helena, just across the road from the Culinary Institute of America. This vineyard in the heart of this renowned AVA produces bright, tropical fruit flavors for our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes
The nose is vibrant with citrus zest aromas, melon and tropical fruits. On the palate, zingy acidity is balanced by tangerine, kiwi and lime flavors with a hint of honeydew melon. A refreshing balance of acidity and fruit linger on the crisp clean finish.
