2015 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Nose Notes of peach, strawberry, and orange blossom are layered with hints of lavender and rosewater.
Palate The crisp, zesty acidity, coupled with ripe melon and key lime pie transition to a subtle creaminess and chalky minerality.
Finish The finish is elegant and lasting, punctuated with limoncello, sage, and grapefruit.
Low yields and warm weather are how 2015 will be remembered. While the presence of the continued drought was felt in the vineyard, careful irrigation and canopy work helped preserve fruit acidity and prevented over-ripening. The harvest was light in quantity, the lightest since the frost-riddled 2008 vintage, but the quality of the resulting wines is outstanding. We just wish we had more.
