Fruit for today's wine comes from a selection of prestigious vineyards throughout the region, including Calistoga Ranch, Bear Flats, Larsen Ranch, and Tamagni Vineyards. These vineyards are located mostly in the northern and warmer end of the valley; the grapes get plenty of sunshine and warmth to fully ripen and develop intense fruit characters. The summer evenings are cool in the Napa Valley, so the grapes maintain a high level of acidity which shines in the final bottling.*
The grapes were fermented in 85 percent stainless-steel tanks to retain the bright fruit character and fresh acidity. The remaining 15 percent of the blend was barrel fermented in neutral French oak to impart weight and texture.* The wine is compelling, with aromas of citrus fruits and spiced pears that follow through on the palate, which displays an almost creamy roundness midway that is juxtaposed against bright acidity.

90 Points, James Suckling
"A Sauvignon with lots of grapefruit and lime undertone. Medium- to full-bodied and round with tension. A delicious finish. Aftertaste of pears and light tropical fruits." (May 2018)
