A Sauvignon Blanc with a perfume of green flowers and lime peel, a silky, succulent texture, and a finish that blazes with glorious acid. Fruit was grown in the winery’s American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, hand-harvested at night, then fermented cool with ambient yeast in 1,500-gallon French oak casks. The wine reposed in those same casks for nine months. The result is a finely-detailed Sauvignon Blanc that’s delicate but not shy. 14.1% abv | $55 (sample)

2014 Estate grown Chardonnay. Lovely balance of fresh tropical fruit and good oak. Not a heavyweight but a very solid Chardonnay 89
