2007 Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley

We sourced the grapes for our 2007 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc primarily from our estate vineyards in Rutherford, our newer vineyards Calistoga and Carneros regions as well as several outstanding vineyards in St. Helena. The superb fruit from these sites allows us to produce a crisp, full-bodied, complex Sauvignon Blanc of distinctive varietal character. In 2007, we further enhanced the wine’s complexity by blending in 4% Sauvignon Musqué, an especially aromatic clone of Sauvignon Blanc, and 7% Sémillon, which enriched the mid-palate, softened acidity and contributed a pleasing citrus tone.
We night-harvest our Sauvignon Blanc grapes at cool temperatures to preserve their fresh, vibrant flavors and achieve an ideal balance of sugar and acidity. After the grapes arrive at the winery, we immediately press the whole clusters to maximize varietal character while minimizing the extraction of astringent compounds from the skins. In 2007, 59% of the juice was tank-fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels; 26% was fermented and aged in barrel; and 15% was tank-fermented with no oak aging.
