"Juicy, ripe peach and tangerine flavors are very appealing, with a refreshing acidity and fresh floral, herb and spice notes. The texture is smooth and juicy, with a lingering finish. Drink now. 3,500 cases made." (WS)

"Pale, green-tinged yellow. Pungent aromas of lime zest, white flowers and mint. Spicy and pungent on the palate, with a nicely restrained sweetness to the chewy flavors of citrus pith, tarragon and licorice. The floral quality comes back on the taut, focused, very long finish." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
SYBARITE is our definitive Sauvignon Blanc. An amalgamation of all of the top Sauvignon Blanc vineyards we work with. It is crafted from Sauvignon Blanc grown at McGinley Vineyard (38%), Three Creek Vineyard (32%), Grassini Vineyard (22%) and Curtis Vineyard (8%). By blending these diverse vineyards we get bold expressions of Sauvignon Blanc’s range of flavors. The result is a wine with remarkable complexity, texture, persistence, and length. SYBARITE is a general term for describing one fond of pleasure and luxury. SYBARITE is derived from Sybaris, an ancient Greek city in southeastern Italy noted for the luxurious, pleasure-seeking habits of many of its inhabitants. It is pronounced Sib-bar-right.
