2017 Vintage Notes
The 2017 grape season will be noted for two events: the rainfall and the fires. Significant rainfall throughout the state ended several years of drought and provided the grapevines the water they needed. Then California wildfires broke out near the end of harvest, most of the grapes of Napa and Sonoma had been harvested. The late summer heat spike allowed for fantastic maturity and great flavors to develop. All of this will lead to small quantities of wines that should be outstanding.
2017 Cultivar Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc
2017 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc captures you with aromas of bright tropical pineapple, pears and bananas. Flavors of lemon, Granny Smith apples, fresh herbs with a faint taste of apricot from two and three year old French Oak barrel fermentation. It’s the alluring finish of rich creaminess and crispness that lingers on your palate. Our favorite food pairings are grilled shrimp and a variety of Asian influenced cuisine. Try this Sauvignon Blanc with one of you favorite spicy dishes and experience the changes on your palate.
