2016 Vintage Notes

An early bud break followed by warm weather and spring rains brought a rapid start to this year’s near perfect growing season in the valley.  The fruit enjoyed beautiful weather during bud break and plenty of time to hang on the vines.  Although yields were down due to drought, the berries were nice and plump, which resulted in balanced and complex flavor profile.

2016 Cultivar Rutherford
Sauvignon Blanc

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.
