2016 Sauvignon Blanc

Our Sauvignon Blanc is well known for its fresh acidity, and complex fruit driven flavors.  The 2016 vintage is the last of Napa's recent drought years. Another low yield, early vintage with wonderful concentration of bright, fresh fruit flavor and full of richness and body.

The organically farmed Gamble Family Vineyard is nestled just to the east of the Yountmill Hill and our grapes are grown in shallow soils with loads of river rocks and gravel deposited by the meandering Napa River over the last few thousand years.  Sauvignon Blanc, usually a highly productive variety, in these conditions and with meticulous farming have extremely low yields, delivering complexity and concentration year after year.  

Gamble's Sauvignon Blanc is always the first in the barn for us. In fact, it would be almost a full month before we brought our next grapes to the winery. Late spring rains helped recharge the soil profile giving a strong start to the season and mild temperatures in August allowed for outstanding flavor development and retention of acid. 2016's moderate yields and ideal temperatures are apparent with the expressive fruit flavors and freshness showing in the glass
