Intense aromas of ripe nectarine, Asian pear, lemongrass, lime and melon are coupled with notes of vanilla, caramel and honey. The wine reveals a surprising lushness in the mouth while retaining a fresh, crisp and refreshing impression. The roundness extends through a persistent finish.
Sauvignon Blanc thrives in Lake County, where the high elevation, intense sunshine and cool nights collaborate to ripen Sauvignon Blanc to express exceptional aromatic intensity while maintaining brilliant acidity.
Sauvignon Blanc is elevated to its highest expression with French oak barrel fermentation and aging sur lies with battonage, endowing the wine with complexity in flavor and richness of texture.
