This rare and enticing Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc was made using fruit from a storied single vineyard in Sonoma County’s Knights Valley. Left to patiently ripen for an extra month, these grapes produced a rich, concentrated wine with alluring tropical aromas, pure sweet peach flavors and balancing acidity. To add complexity, it was aged on the lees for ten months in new oak.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Content 100% Sauvignon Blanc Cooperage 85% New French Oak, Château-style barrels (60 gallons)
Winemaker Notes
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this dazzling late harvest wine begins with a beautiful nose of fragrant honeysuckle, jasmine, lemon blossom and caramel candy apple. On the palate, it is rich and silky, with notes of brown sugar and baking spices underscoring mouth-filling layers of lemon cream and citrus, all of which carry through to a lush and lingering finish.
Production
The 2013 harvest was early, even and excellent with all of our Estate fruit in the winery by October 10th. A warm dry spring brought an early bud break and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set. In the weeks after Labor Day, a moderate heat event followed by a period of perfect weather created a dream scenario for end-of-season ripening. Rain was not a factor, and for the second vintage in a row, the quality of the grapes was exceptional throughout Napa Valley.
