You should only make wines you love to drink...
Located on Galleron Road at the northern end of Rutherford, this organic vineyard produces wines of great character and depth. We've been producing sauvignon blanc from this vineyard since 2014 and are just hitting our stride with it. We think our 2019 is our best to-date and hope you do also.
Our style is more French-influenced with softer tropicals and richness. Pale straw in the glass with notes of orange blossoms and apricots. The palate is fresh, clean and vibrant with Mandarin orange, citrus and hints of minerality leading to a long finish. The splash of semilion adds a richness to the mid-palate and a touch of acidity keeps the wine in balance. This is a perfect pairing with seared scallops, crab cakes or just sipping.
