2013 vintage. This 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the winery’s organic American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, then fermented on native yeast in a mix of 900-gallon foudres and used oak barrels. The wine aged on lees in neutral oak for six months. Green citrus, green melon, jasmine, and a slight savoriness keynote the aroma profile. The body offers melon and passion fruit, while refreshing lime citrus and bass notes of white tea and ginger enliven the finish. 14.1% abv | $30 (sample)

One of the better Sauvignon Blancs I've tasted. Neutral oak, big barrels, organic.
