Quick Facts

Barrel aged Sauvignon Blanc is a house favorite, and we often turn to Bordeaux, when choosing a white for dinner. This is of course riper in style, but it also possesses serious texture and wonderful balance.

The Wine’s Story

“This vineyard is so rocky that Joe and Gail Judge were forced to remove 1000 tons of stone before creating adequate soil for vines. This greatly devigorates the overly enterprising Sauvignon Blanc vines and results in fragrant wines of solidly wrought temper. The wine was fermented entirely in the cigare barrels made famous by Didier Dagueneau, coopered to our specifications (aka, tight grain and very light toast) for us by our friends at Tonnellerie Atelier. Exotic and ambrosial, this wine captures what I love best about good Sauvignon Blanc—great aromatic complexity paired with nice texturing.” Morgan Twain-Peterson
