More about this wine
Few wine regions in the Golden State can grow Sauvignon Blanc with the same crisp and nervy profile that's found in Sauv Blanc heavens like Sancerre or New Zealand, but the Russian River Valley is one of ‘em. It hosts a steady flow of maritime fog that keeps the acidity high, aromatics potent, and the mouth watering.
The “RRV” is known for fancy Pinot Noir and there's not a lot of Sauvignon Blanc from the region that's affordable, but this bottle is a stunning exception. The wine inside flirts with a Loire-Marlborough style closely enough to earn it some major wine geek points. It's a sharp choice for steamers, oysters, chêvre, salads, and anything with pesto. Sauv Blanc lovers, welcome to the Russian River Valley.
