Additional Information

The 2018 vintage was a joy to behold. Early budbreak was slowed by threats of spring frost. A cold, gray spring gave way to a mild, pleasant summer. Every forecasted heatwave fizzled, while the harvest monsoon became a light dusting of rain over eastern region of Los Carneros. For the grapes, this meant ample hang time with no need to rush during harvest. The wines have terrific concentration and have retained all their crispness and vitality.

“A remarkably consistent and cool vintage, our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in stainless steel and aged on gently stirred lees to broaden the wine’s depth and complexity. This wine shimmers with bright aromatics and lively acidity exhibiting notes of exotic tropical fruit, melon, citrus, lime zest and gooseberry.” – Steve Rogstad, Winemaker
