Lifted and bright, our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is an energetic synthesis of apricot,
nectarine and lemongrass. It is a medium bodied wine with heft as well as balance.
The palate is focused, and the finish takes on a complex, citrus-driven intensity.
Our home ranch on the west side of the High Valley AVA has been known as “High
Serenity Ranch” for over one hundred years. The blocks planted to this idyllic site
include Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Gewurztraminer. Each block is
comprised of ancient lakebed and alluvial soils from the surrounding mountain range.
The transverse valley winds create some of the coolest sites in Lake County. The
lower temperatures on the valley floor allow for diurnal temperature swings of more
than forty degrees, enhancing flavor development while retaining a crisp acidity.

We harvest our grapes early in the morning to ensure peak acidity and freshness
upon arrival to the winery. After gentle pressing, we allow the juice to cold settle
overnight. The next day we rack the juice off heavy lees and ferment in small
stainless-steel tanks. Sur lie aging with battonage (lees stirring) once a week in
tank creates additional body, texture and viscosity in the wine. This wine was aged
six months, lightly fined and filtered before bottling for maximum freshness and
