This brilliantly clear, pale-straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc leads with fresh and appealing aromas of Meyer lemon, lime zest, stone fruit, grapefruit, tart apple, and hints of flowers followed by a lively palate which reprises the lemon, lime, and grapefruit themes of the nose. This refreshing, bright, and crisp wine has a long finish, and ends with a lingering impression of citrus and wet stone.
Fruit for this 2012 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc comes primarily from Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley (78%). We chose other lots from similarly prestigious Sonoma County appellations. Fruit from the warmer Dry Creek Valley and Knight’s Valley contributed tropical fruit and nectarine flavors, along with a silky texture. The cooler Russian River Valley lent the wine grapefruit, lime, and mineral characteristics as well as a bright, zingy acid component.
97% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Semillon, 1% Viognier
Food Pairing Notes
We suggest you try this wine with fresh Dungeness crab meat crumbled atop arugula tossed with ruby red grapefruit, golden beats, avocado, and Meyer lemon vinaigrette or pan roasted chicken breast fanned atop pappardelle pasta tossed with English peas and pea sprouts in a lemon and brown butter sauce, topped with gremolata crumble.
