2013 High Valley Sauvignon Blanc
The High Valley AVA rises between 1,600 and 3,000 ft. elevation in the Coastal
Ranges of northeastern Lake County. Thanks to the high elevation and cool
breezes from the oldest lake in North America, it is one of the coolest
appellations in Lake County. We run 1,000 head of sheep on these vineyards,
composting the weeds into nutrients for the red, rocky volcanic soils. These are
intensely flavored grapes, and we craft them into wines that capture the
character of this remarkable region.
Our High Valley Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of lemongrass, ripe melon, fig,
lime peel and grass notes. Flavors of lemon-lime, ripe tropical fruits, and
mineral notes, give way to crisp acids and a long and lingering finish. The
perfect summertime choice! Enjoy with shellfish or a wide variety of cheeses.
