Accendo Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

“Although many Napa Valley vineyards have been converted to Cabernet Sauvignon over the last two decades, there are still sites where great Sauvignon Blanc is found. We have located one such site from which we are sourcing grapes for our white wine, and are planting two other sites that have great promise.”

“Accendo Sauvignon Blanc is the product of discriminating fruit sourcing and conscientious, diligent farming. It is a powerful Sauvignon Blanc, yet with a delicacy and finesse that can only come with a winemaking philosophy that honors the fruit and the vineyard’s terroir.”

Françoise Peschon, Winemaker

“Showing terrific clarity, this is detailed, juicy and vibrant, with bright lime and tangerine flavors. Accents of lemon verbena, honeysuckle and grapefruit linger. Drink now.”

Wine Spectator

Stag's Leap AVETA Sauvignon Blanc

“Inviting aromas of citrus, guava, lemongrass, orange blossom and hints of boxwood and tangerine. On the palate, the wine is fresh and bright with citrus flavors and a lingering finish with a touch of bright acidity. The weight, flavorful texture and acidity make this a versatile food wine.”

Wine & Spirits

Matthiasson Proprietary White

“More Californian wineries need to recognize that often the most complex and interesting wines are blends, not single varietal efforts. This cuvee certainly demonstrates that admirably. Gloriously fragrant aromas of spring flowers, nectarines, mangoes, and honeyed grapefruit jump from the glass of this extraordinarily seductive white wine. Medium-bodied and fresh with abundant fruit, this is a terrific dry white that should drink nicely for several years. Why are there not more California white wines such this?”

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

“One of my favorite white wines from California. A unique blend of 59% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Ribolla Gialla, 14% Semillon and 7% Tocai Friulano. Notes of white flowers, Kaffir lime, green curry and lemon curd. Hint of oak with racy minerality. Dry, long, great balance”

Rajat Parr, Sommelier

“This is a very intentional blend of four varieties from two vineyards. The Sauvignon Blanc brings a clean fresh citrusy acidity and some tropical character. The Ribolla Gialla brings seashell minerality, nuttiness, and structure to the blend. The Semillon contributes viscosity and waxiness that adds gravity and weight. The Tocai Friulano adds spicy aromatic notes. The acidity and fruit expression is balanced by a rich lees character and a faint backdrop of creamy oak. There is interplay in the wine between lightness and richness, and focus and complexity. Flavors include the trademark white peach, kafir lime, lychee nut, beeswax, ripe fig, and pineapple, with prominent wet stones, oyster shells, and freshly baled straw.”

Ashes & Diamonds’ Blanc Napa Valley

“ASHES & DIAMONDS’ Blanc is a fully ripe and textured, yet bright, zesty and supremely age-worthy blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from three carefully-chosen vineyards in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District and Yountville. Steve Matthiasson’s classically-balanced, restrained wines consistently earn the attention of consumers and critics alike, winning him Winemaker of the Year from both Food & Wine and the San Francisco Chronicle. Since receiving his M.S. from UC Davis in 1996, he has consulted for historic vineyards such as Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Spottswoode Winery, the Araujo Estate and Dalla Valle Vineyards. His commitment to viticulture stands as an affirmation of his belief that great wine starts in the vineyard.”

2017 Clif Family Winery Ryan’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley

“One of a growing number of site-specific Sauvignon Blancs in Napa, this one strikes a balance between freshness (fermentation started in tank) and rich mouthfeel (time in barrel and lots of lees stirring). Hints of tropical fruit flavors join stone fruit and creamy citrus.”

Sara L. Schneider, Robb Report

“At Clif Family Winery, we have found the fruit from Ryan’s Vineyard to be too good to blend away. As a result, we have created our Oak Knoll District Sauvignon Blanc, which is 100% from Ryan’s Vineyard. This wine continues to impress us, year after year, and we know it is a result of the expertise and attention to detail in the field.”

Solace Ryan’s Vineyard Oak Knoll Sauvignon Blanc

“Distinctively fresh nose. White rose and feint lichi and pineapple under-layers, ripe yet extremely delicate. Ryan’s Vineyard grows a very distinctive Sauvignon Blanc producing very complex and elegant flavors unique to Sauvignon Blanc. The body feels like biting into a fresh ripe white peach. Soft, textured and long. The wine finishes with the right balance of acidity and softness to refresh your palate.”

Julien Fayard, Winemaker

Robert Jordan Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

“This aromatic gem is made with world-class fruit from Ryan’s Vineyard owned by the Verhey family on Big Ranch Road, north of Napa. The perfect mixture of gravelly soils, warm days and cool breezes blowing in from the bay in the afternoon make this an ideal spot to grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes with expressive flavors, racy acidity, and natural verve. With a lovely pale golden hue, this new release opens up with attractive aromas of fresh spring flowers, ripe melons, tangy citrus, and pastry crust. In the glass, the ripe flavors of Crenshaw melon, gooseberry, grapefruit and fresh key lime pie are enhanced with lively notes of white pepper and macadamia nuts, creamy texture, zippy acidity, and a rewarding finish that is dry instead of sweet.”

Christopher Sawyer, Sommelier

Peirson Meyer Ryan’s Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

“We have crafted this wine with a key philosophy in mind; Sauvignon Blanc should not only present the classic freshness true to the varietal, but should also provide an ample and textured mouth feel. Our Sauvignon Blanc expresses the light and delicate aromas of spring fruit blossoms, fresh white peaches, and just a hint of spice and ripe apple. In its youth, this wine is lively and fresh on the palate; as it ages in the bottle, it tends to mellow and build body.”

Robbie Meyer, Winemaker
