Vineyard Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine come from five distinct Russian River Valley vineyards from five different growers. This blend features grapes from Domenichelli Vineyards, Balletto Vineyards, Nick Leras Vineyards, Vino Farms, and Hopkins River Ranch.
Winemaking Notes: The wine was cold fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in order to maintain the high fruit profile and to preserve and develop the esters and thiols that are characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc. The five different lots were fermented to completion separately and combined together during racking in November.
Tasting Notes: Refreshingly crisp, the Taft Street Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of pineapple, lemon, and gooseberry. On the palate, a fine mineral edge frames notes of citrus pith and pea blossom, while lively acidity provides a polished mouth feel on the finish.
