2010 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc Case
The 2010 vintage was fantastic for our white varieties and especially the Sauvignon Blanc from the Talcott Vineyard. A smaller crop than 2009, the 2010 fruit exhibited intensely ripe flavors and aromatics. The Napa Valley experienced an unusually cool summer with a coastal cloud layer that seemed never to break up causing the vineyard growth cycle to move along slowly. This allowed ripening to occur at a even pace giving the fruit the ability to develop intense aromatics and flavors with a perfectly balanced acidity. Even an extreme late August heat wave couldn't deter a perfectly balanced Sauvignon Blanc crop, due to the 'precision farming' of our skilled vineyard management team.
