This is our fourth Sauvignon Blanc since we started our custom crush projects in 2005. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc Clone One from the Big Valley American Viticultural Area in Lake County. This vineyard sits next to Clear Lake, estimated to be two and a half million years old. The evolving water shed has eroded into the fertile blocks of clay and loam soils, with swaths of gravel deposits and well-drained soil. Bounding with a grapefruit nose and bouquet, a table grape natural sweetness in the middle, it finishes dry and flinty. —Leslie Hennessy, winemaker. $24.95 per bottle.
