2023 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Crafted from two separate lots harvested from Blake’s Launch, a superb vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Each lot contributes distinct aromas and flavors. Aromatics begin with delicate honeydew, cantaloupe, and refreshing lime zest leading to a mouthwatering laser beam of Meyer lemon, guava, passionfruit, and lovely minerality. This wine finishes bright and balanced, with a crisp texture and nice mid-palate weight.

Our Vision

Nestled adjacent to the meandering Russian River, the vineyard’s soils benefit from its closeness to the riverbank. Its Yolo soils are deep and well-drained, formed in alluvium from mixed rocks. The vines struggle in these demanding soil conditions and produce grapes with concentration and balance.
