The aroma of this wine is compelling, virtually reaching out and grabbing our attention. Yellow peach, melon, guava and crisp Fuji apple are accented with hints of tropical mango and pineapple. Lime, Minneola tangelo and orange blossom lend citrus notes. Accents of dry summer grass, vanilla-toned panna cotta and toasted crème brûlée create complexity. An underlying minerality adds further sophistication. The rich palate coats the tongue balanced with hints of yummy Creamsicle and Ruby Red grapefruit. Refreshing acidity and a mouthwatering finish cap the sensual experience of this exceptional Sauvignon Blanc. Delightful now, with bottle age, this wine will be a knockout! Pairs beautifully with Kaffir lime and coconut soup with black cod. The combination of Kaffir lime and coconut milk with the slightly spicy broth makes an outstanding pairing with our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc.

A pretty thread of orange water adds an aromatic lift to the core of nectarine, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a succulent, fleshy frame. Dried ginger, honeysuckle and melon notes linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 12,500 cases made.

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc contains 60% estate fruit this year and 42% of the blend comes from Sauvignon Musqué. Barrel fermented and aged in 18% new oak with twice-weekly lees stirring, it has a gregarious nose with gooseberry, tart kiwi, tarragon, cut grass, white peaches and elderflower plus touches of lime and stone. Light to medium-bodied, it offers great flavor intensity with bright, zippy acidity and a long, lightly textured finish. 12,500 cases produced.

Rich and rounded in stone fruit, pineapple and mango flavors, this hearty white is made in a substantial, full-bodied style that is opulently lush. A length of complementary oak adds to the complexity and integration, finishing in a snap of crème brûlée.

Starting with the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, which comes all from the Russian River Valley, it has a vivid bouquet of green citrus, flinty minerality, white figs, and sugared mint to go with a rounded, sweetly fruited style on the palate. Made in a soft, charming, ready-to-go style, drink it over the coming year or three.
