Leah Jorgensen Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Rogue Valley, OR
The Leah Jorgensen Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is delightful and refreshing wine and atypical in all the right ways. Intensely aromatic, it conveys a lush mix of honeysuckle, sweet hay, smoke, lime and honeydew melon. And that's before you take the first sip. The low alcohol and bright acidity set it up for a wide range of poultry, pasta and seafood options, and anything with goat cheese is sure-fire. Perfect with Spinach Salad and Warm Goat Cheese.

Rodney Strong Charlotte’s Home Sauvignon Blanc 2018$19.00Add to cart
Rod Strong established the heritage Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in 1971, naming it Charlotte’s Home in honor of his wife. Today, that vineyard remains the core of the Rodney Strong Charlotte’s Home Sauvignon Blanc 2016, along with other select estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley as well as the Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Fresh, bright and crisp, the Rodney Strong Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is a wine of balance, richness and aromatic complexity. The Alexander Valley fruit provides the backbone to this Sauvignon Blanc, while the ocean cooled Russian River Valley fruit offers zesty citrus notes of grapefruit, lime blossoms and lemongrass. The warmer Dry Creek Valley fruit gives the wine a wonderful honeydew melon and tropical character. Together, the three valleys make a classic Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc that pairs wonderfully with soft cheeses such as goat cheese, vegetable quiche and a variety of seafood dishes. Rodney Strong supports LUTHER BURBANK CENTER FOR THE ARTS, which offers an array of cultural, popular and family programming selected to enrich and entertain the North Bay community, and CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees), a nationwide program that provides support to children and families of restaurant employees who are experiencing or afflicted by life-altering circumstances.

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested in two different periods – one at lower sugars and one at higher sugars. All of the grapes were ripe, but each pick offered different nuances. We loved all the separate wine lots and enjoyed the synergy of blending. This wine has classic LMR varietal freshness and charm; it’s difficult to believe this wine was grown in Cabernet country. Its fruits range from citrus to kiwi to just-ripe peach. The salty and mineral characteristics which grow out of our terroir and cold fermentations have become signature and reliable. The finish is crisp, full-of-esters and balanced.
