2014 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc
Powerfully perfumed, the bright nose shows intense aromatics of lychee, melon and ripe white peach. The palate is equally as bright with a booming fruit entry of crisp apple and Asian pear, intensified by notes of stone fruit and lime curd. This wine is beautifully balanced with crisp acidity giving way to more depth and richness as you sip.
2013 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
This bold wine is more fruit forward in style, showing deeper complexity and brighter fruit profiles. Notes of honeysuckle, fig, and vanilla give a hint to the richness on the palate. Aged in stainless steel and French oak, this wine's crisp acidity carries through to the riper notes. The mid-palate is more viscous and has considerable weight to balance the beautiful acidity.
2014 Proprietary White
Aromatics are driven by a floral perfume of oleander, along with tropical fruit and a hint of pistachio. Your taste buds will remind you of spring and summer with a crisp entry of stone and exotic fruits, that round out nicely with flavors of pear and a hint of apple. At the finish, the dash of Viognier brings a smooth velvety texture that is balanced nicely with a hint of vanilla cream.
