2020 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve
Monterey County may have built its vinous reputation primarily on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but our windswept AVA is also one of the best places in California for Sauvignon Blanc. Unlike our Estate SB, which only sees stainless steel during its journey to the bottle, our Reserve SB was fermented with native yeast then aged in neutral French oak for six months. Accordingly, our 2020 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is a richly nuanced wine that encapsulates the big three: variety, terroir and technique. It offers vibrant aromatics ranging from notes of tarragon and quince to vanilla and subtle toasty oak. The palate is rich, focused and beautifully balanced thanks to the firm acidity. The finish is long, complex and complete.
