This exceptional vintage, although more delicate than previous years, showcases the distinct structure and characters inherent to Pinot Noir. The resulting wine is a pale, pink color with ethereal aromas of pink lady apples and roses. The palette offers lively, expansive flavors of strawberry and cherries. This wine is thirst-quenching and will be a must have at all your spring and summer gatherings.
Bright, crisp and refreshing the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is expressive with citrus, notes of grapefruit rind, key lime, and fresh basil. The richness of flint minerals, lemongrass and passion fruit on your palate created from the concrete egg fermentation is perfect for all Cultivar Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc lovers. A perfect match for garden salads, heirloom tomatoes with burrata cheese and grilled fish.
Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a rich wine all the way from the aromas to the palate with a long finish. The first impression is of tropical fruits that are followed by hues of lemon zest; granny smith apples, and green gage plums. On the palate you feel the richness of fruit with notes of vanilla from the French oak barrel aging. The richness is balanced with brightness from tropical fruits and a hint of minerality on the finish. Like all of the Cultivar wines, the 2016 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a food wine that perfectly pairs with cheese goat and sheep milk cheeses and will work well with a variety of salads.
