Our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is an incredible display of how well this white grape can shine here at the estate in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. This delicious vintage is rich with aromas of lemon, lime, and lychee, layered with flavors of melon and wet stone across a multi-layered palate. This wine is complex and full with a soft mouthfeel, yet still very balanced with a delightful acidity and a long finish.
…it was a warm, dry winter and we didn't start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March. Summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days. This build-up to harvest was interrupted by two wildfires as we turned to the fall; The LNU Complex Fire started on August 17th and the Glass Fire started on September 27. The white wine harvest started in early August, are showing excellent development in cellars, reflecting the fine vintage year. While the red wine harvest will be smaller than usual, most wineries were able to move forward with red wine vinification.
