4 STARS - Press Democrat Wine of the Week
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 crow slope side vineyard, surrounding our farmhouse style tasting room. The vineyard consists of 1 and ½ acres of clone 3 Sauvignon Blanc, and 60 headtrained vines of clone 173 Semillon.
Danielle’s Estate Sauvignon Blanc is light straw in color, a very floral wine with notes of passion fruit, orange blossom, and honeydew melon. On the palate, medium texture, bright acid with lemon, white peach and a long melon finish. This medium bodied aromatic wine is clean and crisp and is perfect on a hot summer day. Or, pair it with oysters, a delicate fish or a mixed green salad, light dressing and goat cheese on top.
