Winemaker Robert Blue Notes
With our third vintage of Sauvignon Blanc, there’s no longer any doubt: we’ve truly found a way to celebrate the fresh, lively spirit of organic viticulture. Each vintage we marry two great growing regions, Lake and Mendocino Counties. Blending fruit from exceptional organic growers such as Patianna who share our philosophy and care deeply about the land they farm sets a high standard. As the Golden Eagles fly (and they often do here on the North Coast), the vineyards are never more than a dozen miles apart, distinctive, yet complementary.

This is a wine truly crafted in the vineyard. Intense aromas of grapefruit, kiwi and freshly cut grass are captured in every glass. The oft-found muskiness of Sauvignon Blanc is offse ...more... t by the concentrated tropical aromas and bright minerality in the wine. There’s no mistaking the New World style. As you drink, an integrated, almost boastful acidity gives the wine a fresh, vibrant feel. Guava and melon linger on the palate. And yes, for this wine, screwcaps allow us to make sure you taste the same thing in your glass that we do as we blend and bottle at the winery. Raise a glass and toast with us our Good Earth.
