October 13 at 6pm
2017 CALIFORNIA SAUVIGNON BLANC
- Luminous Ivory.
Aromas - Boisterous tropical notes, fleeting citrus and touches of dried
Flavors - A core of grapefruit pith and a smattering of peach and guava,
with some fleeting citrus rind, green papaya and hints of sage.
Structure - Clean, focused, bright acidity binds together a plush
mid-mouth with a long linger on the finish.
undeniable core and intensity of fruit is indicative of the potential for Lake
County Sauvignon Blanc. The Lodi fruit develops a textural component, while the
Monterey portion offers complexity and nuanced flavors not prevalent in Lake
County and thus, when carefully blended, reflect a balanced Sauvignon Blanc true
to its California roots.
