The year began with abundant rainfall, followed by a mild Spring resulting in extended flowering with little shatter. A Labor Day weekend heatwave kicked harvest into high gear, then cool weather allowed sugar levels to return to normal. By October 8 nearly 90 percent of the 2017 grape tonnage was in when warm, fierce winds fueled an unprecedented firestorm. Napa Valley's winemakers remain committed to upholding the region's reputation for making some of the world's finest wines and early articles about the 2017 vintage describe the wines with words such as "finesse," "great complexity of flavor" and "elegant."
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc originates from micro-blocks, sourced from a premium vineyard located in Napa Valley’s Yountville Appellation. This pure expression of the varietal seduces the palate with a perfect mix of passion fruit, fresh guava, mineral and crushed pineapple.
