Sauvignon Blanc, Lake County, California

Our Sauvignon blanc is grown on the Rosenthal Vineyard in southern Lake County, located to the north of Napa Valley and away from the fog and moisture that characterize the coastal counties.  The moderate elevations found in the area contribute to the favorable growing conditions.  The unique variety of soils make for a geologically rich region, heavy in volcanic and mineral content, and ideal for growing grapes.  The county experiences a 50-degree differential between its daytime and nighttime temperatures, producing very warm days and cool, clear nights.  The area is known for producing world-class Sauvignon blanc – with lively crisp and bright fruit flavors, which are more melony than grassy and herbal.  Our Sauvignon blanc is cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain beautiful, crisp fruit flavors.
