2016 Sauvignon Blanc
There’s something about Sauvignon Blanc that no other wine can match. With a translucent, pale gold color, this single vineyard wine from Handley ranch just north of the town of St. Helena was fermented in a combination of once-used, twice-used, and neutral French oak barrels and aged eight months in oak. Softly integrated flavors of acacia, hycainth, lemon, and vanilla bean emerge from the glass. On the palate the wine is full, striking but taut. We love the balance that we find in Sauvignon Blanc from this part of the valley: full and ripe flavors of peach with citrus on the finish.
