The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc begins with soft aromas of citrus fruits and layers of silky vanilla and lightly toasted caramel while taking in a mouthful of tropical fruit flavors such as guava, mango, pineapple and green apple.

The Winemaking

We split the fermentation into two portions tank and barrel. By doing this we create complexity. The tank fermented portion is fermented at very low temperature. A cool slow fermentation allows a larger amount of fruity esters to stay in the wine. While the barrel fermented wine (16%) absorbs color, flavor, sugar, and aromatics of spice, vanilla, and toast. The barrels also build structure and lengthen the finish by adding tannin. We use a cooperage based in Romania by the name of Transylvania Bois Tonnellerie. This extremely tight grained eastern European oak fits our sauvignon blanc program like a glove.

The Vineyard

This is our seventh vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from the LamBentz vineyard located in Pope Valley just east of Howell Mountain. The fruit is a consistently bright and beautiful. The fruit is consistently bright and beautiful.

The Vintage

The 2012 vintage was a marvelous one. The elements all aligned to create a nearly perfect environment in Napa and Northern California. The wines of 2012 are packed with concentrated fruit flavors while being balanced and layered in complexity.
