Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley opens with a mild lime and gentle grapefruit bouquet with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its fruit and acidity. I also found it pleasantly mouthwatering and juicy. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild grapefruit with notes of beautifully integrated minerality and lime. I also detected hints of pineapple and green apple. The finish is dry and it drifts away nicely. This refined and elegant styled Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly. I would pair this wine with pan seared scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2015 Naissance has aromas of honeydew, lemon zest, yellow flowers, and green apple. Full, crisp mouthfeel and intense minerality with a grassy, citrus finish.
