Our Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by steely, green citric notes, gooseberry fruit, and a grassy, herbaceous notes. The neutral oak adds a depth and richness that is beautiful on the palate. Julien brings a touch of great white Bordeaux characteristics to our Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc.
The 2012 St Helena Cabernet is our second wine from the highly regarded 2012 Vintage. It is also our first release from this wonderful appellation. As you travel from Napa, temperatures increase in the valley the further north you go. While it can be 88 degrees in Napa, it will be almost 93 in St. Helena, and up to 100 degrees further north in Calistoga. This rise in temperature results in wine with richer, deeper flavors, great structure and length on the finish.
Located just above our Estate Vineyard, on top of the Mayacamas Mountain Range, is Leaky Lake Vineyard. First planted in 2007, the grapes grow on the hillside facing the southeast, resulting in wine with well-developed flavors and structure. The 2011 vintage marks our second single vineyard offering from Cultivar.
