Vintage Notes

This vintage will be remembered for high quality, but low yields. The 2015 growing season in the Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May--during the peak of bloom--caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015 compared in both average yields and in comparison the three abundant years that preceded it.

The harvest was one of the earliest on record in the Napa Valley, beginning on July 22 with the picking of grapes for sparkling wine, and concluding for most all vintners and growers in the valley by mid-October. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the water year, refreshing the vines and putting a smile on vintners’ faces.

2015 Cultivar Napa
Sauvignon Blanc

Once again the beautiful aromas of the Musque clone of Sauvignon Blanc leap from the glass. Generous and persistent stone fruit and tropical notes on the nose lead to peaches and nectarine on the palate. The acidity is balanced and medium to high. This is a rich, high-octane Sauvignon Blanc made from classy fruit that has some serious weight on your palate.  A small percentage was fermented in neutral barrels as well as a concrete egg to add depth. The wine has a long finish with bursts of acidity and lemon zest. It is perfectly for lovely salads and grilled fish.
