The 2014 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc shows off plenty of ripeness and varietal freshness. The complex aromatics include a range of fruit (apricot to citrus), fresh spring flowers and freshly cut grass.


On the palate, these flavors are elaborated by salinity, water chestnut
and grapefruit zest notes. The mouthfeel is round and coating, but still possesses the
crisp acidity and balanced alcohol that characterize LMR Sauvignon Blanc

Growing Conditions

The benefits of dry-farming contributed to a very successful 2014. One of the warmest and driest vintages on record, Napa Valley certainly experienced the effects of the drought. There was no frost during bud break which contributed to an strong, early set in the vineyard. Warm days and no rain allowed us to harvest a beautiful crop in early weeks of August.

The terroir and growing season contribute to the wine's varietal typicity, the expression of house style and food-friendly appeal. All that fruit is sweetly extracted, but the wine is classically dry as always
