Winery Notes:
It captures the character of the variety, the complexity of our site and the coolness of the vintage. The nose offers peach, mango, Butterscotch Melon and lemon. The flavors add mango, passion fruit, and Musque to the mix. While this Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and powerful, it also possesses the ample structure and acidity to age.

The beginning of spring 2009 was unusually warm and dry. After a cool and uneventful summer, a warm spell in early September brought ripeness up to normal levels. The cool growing season yielded Sauvignon Blanc that is intensely flavored and well structured.
