Winemaker Kent Jarman Notes
At Napa Station, sustainable farming and meticulous grape selection form the core of our winemaking philosophy. Our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from several districts within Napa Valley, including Oak Knoll, Rutherford and Los Carneros. Each of these contributing to its flavor profile.

Sorted, whole cluster pressed, then fermented in stainless steel tanks and neutral French Oak barrels, this wine is absent of any malolactic fermentation.

Aromas of bright citrus, ripe pear, melon and fig flavors all add to the richness and complexity in the glass. The round mid-palate along with the refreshing acidity enhances the balanced mouthfeel with a pleasing finish.
o Whole cluster pressed with limited skin contact ...more... .
o 82% fermented in stainless steel, 18% neutral French oak barriques (4 months).
o No malolactic fermentation.
