The North Coast Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from vineyards in Napa Valley, including, from south to north, Estate ranches in Carneros, Suscol Springs, Rutherford and Calistoga and top vineyard throughout the North Coast. The exceptional fruit from these sites produces a rich, complex Sauvignon Blanc that is simultaneously fresh, crisp and zesty.

Grapes are harvested during the cool nighttime hours to fully capture their fresh, pure flavors and vibrant acidity. Whole-cluster-pressing of the fruit under anaerobic conditions maximizes varietal intensity while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins.

In 2022, we fermented 97% of the juice in stainless steel tanks, 2% in concrete eggs to soften the acidity, and 1% in neutral French oak barrels. Following fermentation, the wine aged five months in neutral French oak barrels, with a small amount aging in concrete.

Harvest Note
The 2022 vintage had high climate variability beginning with a cool and mild spring followed by a warm summer that led to an early harvest. Grape quality was still exceptional with balanced acidity and freshness, resulting in vibrant fruit forward wines.
Tasting Note
Aromas of fresh sweet citrus, grapefruit, and vibrant melon lead to complex notes of green pear, freshly cut hay, and stony minerality. Light bodied and elegant on the palate, this wine beautifully balances bright, citrusy acidity with lively flavors of ripe melon, grapefruit, and citrus zest before a smooth, refreshing finish.
