Winemaker's Notes

Vineyard

Danielle’s Estate vineyard, established on our Los Amigos property, in the summer of 2009. This vineyard is farmed organically, and certified CCOF. Situated just off the Russian River and south of the town of Healdsburg, Danielle’s vineyard is planted on the crown, of this slope side vineyard, surrounding our farmhouse style tasting room. The vineyard consists of 1 and ½ acres of clone 3 Sauvignon Blanc, and 60 head-trained vines of clone 173 Semillon.

Tasting Notes

Light straw in color with hints of honey, ginger, honeysuckle and ripe pineapple on the nose. This wine tastes like extracting the nectar out of a honeysuckle flower with rich textures of green apple, lemon verbena, grapefruit and white peach. It has a nice long lingering finish that makes you want to go back for more.
