Longboard 2018 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc$21.00Add to cart
Longboard 2018 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is the twelth vintage of this classical varietal. Winemaker/Owner (and surfer) Oded Shaked started making this wine after he realized that when he went to lunch, that is the wine he reached out to most often to start a springtime or summer meal. The Russian River Valley grows Sauvignon Blanc that shows tropical fruit but retains enough minerality to keep the wine balanced and vibrant. The wine was minimally processed, with only a small fraction spending time in older (neutral) oak barrels, just enough to add a light layer of creaminess over the core of pear, lychee and citrus flavors. There is a slight floral (Honeysuckle) note in the wine too. This style of Sauvignon Blanc aims to layer the minerality we love in wines from Europe with the great fruit character we are blessed with in California. When released, the wine shows mainly tropical fruit character, balanced by a lively acidity. As it ages over the next few years, some honey and apple pie character will start developing and adding richness and depth to the wine.
Paired with a fresh green salad with fennel shavings and succulent ruby grapefruit sectuibs or with your favorite fresh seafood (try sashimi or a spicy Thai dish), this wine has proved to be quite versatile in pairing with imaginative cuisine.

Noria white wines are modeled after traditional Japanese sakes. They are especially made to balance the quiet shifts of flavor found in Japanese food. The Noria Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is modeled after a style of Japanese sake called “Dai-gingo”
Brilliant aromas of grapefruit, lime, pear, a hint of lychee, orange zest, bay leaf, flint stone, lemon grass, and pistachio. Refreshing flavor jumps out of a glass and lingers long. Vibrant yet delicate acidity balanced well with supple mouthfeel. Lively and smooth.

Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Rutherford, Napa Valley$24.00Add to cart
Long Meadow Ranch employs an integrated organic farming system using simple, sustainable methods. Each part of the Ranch contributes to the health of the whole. Vineyards and wine making, olive orchards and olive oil making, cattle and horse breeding all work together in complementary fashion, as do the egg-laying poultry flock and the organic vegetable gardens. All crops are certified organic.
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.
