Vineyard Notes

  • Some fruit was picked at lower sugars to maintain crisp grapefruit notes.
  • Our Musqué clone fruit was given additional time on the vine to develop honeysuckle, tropical and floral notes.
  • Fruit comes primarily from our Little Cannon estate vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District.
  • Always food friendly, this wine was built in the vineyards and cold fermented slowly to protect its
    fruity esters.

 

This refreshing wine is perfect to enjoy well-chilled on a warm day, paired with grilled cod fish tacos topped with fresh pineapple slaw and a squeeze of lime.

Harvest Notes

  • Here in the valley, it was a warm, dry winter and we didn’t start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March.
  • The mild spring season gave us a great early start.
  • Summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days.
  • Care was taken to fine tune crop loads in each vineyard block, helping to maintain intensity in the fruit.
