Stag's Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2008

78% Sauvignon Blanc 17% Sauvignon Musque 5% Semillon

This wine has the floral aromas of Sauvignon Musque and the slightly pungent white asparagus and fresh-cut grass nose of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapefruit, lemon-lime and white peach flavors are bright and juicy, with tropical guava and mango in the background. The finish is energetic and lingering, with brisk acidity and a mineral edge.

Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 2010

This enticing Sauvignon Blanc offers a beautiful combination of freshness and complexity. The aromas are rich and layered with elements of pineapple, guava, peach and lemon zest. On the palate, the entry is crisp and inviting with good acidity supporting flavors of lemon meringue, grapefruit, pear and flint. The addition of Semillon ccentuates the wine's tropical notes with subtle oak adding nuance and dimension.

Blend: 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon

"An interesting and complex wine, dry and crisp, and unique among California Sauvignon Blancs. Although there's plenty of citrus fruit, it's marked by other things, such as minerals and herbs, and the sweet, olivaceous taste that the variety's Sauvignon nature contributes in a cool vintage."

Groth Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc 97%, Semillon 3%.

Our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.

Pair with:Dungeness crab and arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette.

Souverain Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Vineyard & Vintage Notes
Our Estate vineyards in northern Alexander Valley are the primary source of grapes for the 2008 Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The soils here are composed of gravelly benchland and alluvial strata, which produce moderately vigorous vines yielding fruit with flavors of citrus, melon and floral notes.

All of the fruit for this wine was whole cluster pressed in order to maintain varietal character and yield the most delicate juices. Winemaker Ed Killian opted for a style that reflects classic varietal character with a softer mouthfeel. A combination of cool tank fermentation and barrel fermentation (allows for a richer flavor profile while retaining typical citrus zest aromatics. In order to achieve a delicate oak balance, the juice was fermented in a combination of once-used and 3-year-old French oak barrels and aged for five months on the lees before final blending and bottling.

Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Luscious, deep scents of lemon grass, grapefruit and passion fruit jump from the glass to proudly proclaim this wine's varietal. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of lime and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish persists on the palate with great length of flavor. This is an easy-sipping, eminently drinkable wine that doesn't sacrifice complexity or varietal character in its quest to be flat-out enjoyable.

The perfect aperitif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.

Our Sauvignon Blanc fruit is grown in the cool coastal vineyards of Lake County, Monterey County and Mendocino County – each contributing a different nuance to the finished blend. A touch of Chardonnay adds body, while a splash of Semillon adds lovely fig tones.

"Succulent melon, ripe pear and fresh lemongrass mingle together in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh lime complements the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine." - Randy Ullom, Winemaster
