This is tangy and fresh, with sliced-melon and mineral character. Full body with crisp acidity and a bright, clean finish. Like a pretty young white Bordeaux. A new wine from the daughter of Chuck Wagner of Caymus. Drink now."

An elegant and refined style of Sauvignon Blanc that is subtle and balanced, with minerality and bright natural acidity. On the nose, aromas of citrus, iron, wet stone and a hint of D'Anjou pear temp your senses, while a crisp lightness, balanced acidity and underlying notes of fleshy grapefruit and lime zest please the palate. The significant minerality and soft body rounds out the wine. This Sauvignon Blanc was made to pair with food, yet is very versatile. Bottled using a Guala twist top in lieu of cork.
Jenny Wagner, Winemaker

In the Vineyard
I believe the key to creating a truly unique expression of California Sauvignon Blanc begins in the vineyards. A variety of effective methods were taken to decrease crop production for higher quality wine, including bloom brushing, root pruning and deficit irrigation.

For this vintage, I sourced grapes from two Napa Valley vineyards Emmolo Rutherford and Emmolo Oak Knoll. Even though innovative farming techniques are the foundation for producing great wines, I also had to work with what Mother Nature handed me. The 2012 vintage had a mild growing season that was longer than usual, allowing for slow ripening and a long "hang time." Throughout the growing season, we made multiple leaf-pulling and crop thinning passes, focusing on the fruit zone to give each cluster a kiss of the summer's sun. The fruit was brought in using a combination of hand and machine harvesting during the early morning hours between August 28th and September 12th.
