100% Sauvignon Blanc from organic or biodynamic vineyards at the base of Atlas Peak and Calistoga. Showing zippy acidity and loads of citrus (lime, grapefruit and lemon in that order), lemongrass and Macintosh apple smells and flavors. Particularly mouth-filling for a pure, not oaky Sauvignon Blanc…the high quality grapes provide the body. Going on three years after harvest, the acidity is well integrated into the wine now. I find this to be an excellent no-food sipper, but really blossoms with salty proteins (bacon wrapped shrimp, teriyaki chicken).

 

Owner Dave Bos is a biodynamic vineyard manager for small vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Contra Costa Counties. He purchases small lots of the grapes he grows for his clients to make his wines. He makes his wines at Tres Sabores Winery on the Rutherford Bench.
