Wine Review: This straw yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa is stylistically different than most Sauvignon Blanc you will try. It opens with a cut grass and green pepper like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly citrusy. The flavor profile is a complex blend of ripe peach, apricot, butterscotch, and some minerality. The finish is dry and lingers for a little while. The group that tried this wine liked it and would pair it with chicken marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our "Blueprint" Sauvignon Blanc exhibits the fabulous acidity, minerality and amazing purity of its Sancerre sisters. Produced with a focus on preservation of aromatics and acidity, it has a delicate pale straw robe, an elegant and intense floral perfume (geranium, melon and lime), and crisp fruit flavors with profound richness and length.
