One of Napa's tastiest, classic sauvignon blancs. @grgichhills does it again.

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)

Grapefruit and citrus type taste. Everything is just subtle enough that it's a terrific bottle of wine. Wonderful lighter wine with oysters!

Green and grassy, but not overwhelmingly so.
