Winemaker Notes

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc delivers appealing aromatics and a complex palate. It brings a unique perspective due to the terroir of the Murrieta’s Well estate vineyards. The aromatics are quick, lasting, and enticing showing passion fruit, lime, guava, apple, with a hint of lychee. This is complemented by a touch of vanilla and lightly toasted oak. The palate is medium-bodied, with a slightly oily texture and a crisp finish.

This wine would do well as an aperitif, or paired with a pear and gorgonzola salad, goat cheese on toast, and fresh shucked oysters.

Blend: 76% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Malvasia Bianca, 7% Muscat Canelli, 6% Chardonnay, 4% Viognier

Tasting Panel
This white is a new introduction for the label. Descendants of the original Chateau d’Yquem Sauvignon Blanc cuttings are planted in the estate Louis Mel Vineyard, where the vines are planted in well-drained gravelly soils. The result is exquisite, with notes of tangerine and honeysuckle on nose and palate. While voluptuous on the front end, a salinity of ripe pear comes up mid-way and lingers with a wave of minerality, surrounded by green apple. A charmer.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Subtle earth and mineral aromas lead to nicely crisp, flinty flavors in this well-balanced, tangy and medium-bodied wine. Those flinty characteristics don't steal the show, while an attractive savory touch also unfolds on the palate and finish.

A warm sub-appellation of the greater San Francisco Bay AVA (American Viticultural Area), Livermore Valley mainly hides behind the shielding effects of the bay’s eastern hills. However, late afternoon winds cool down summer nights as daytime heat rises from the Central Valley in the east, pulling the cold, foggy, bay air inland. This cooler evening air permeates the Livermore Valley's foothills, making this an ideal environment for the development of phenolic ripeness and concentration in its wine grapes.

The Livermore Valley is one of California's oldest wine regions and has played a crucial role in shaping California's wine industry. Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes in the Livermore Valley in the 1760s. Then in the mid 1800s, a man named Robert Livermore planted the area’s first commercial vineyards. Winemaker pioneer C. H. Wente arrived a few years later; today the Wente Chardonnay clone is the source of a majority of California Chardonnay. Furthermore, James Concannon and the Wetmore brothers recognized the virtues of the area’s Bordeaux-like gravel soils and dedicated themselves to making high quality wine from Bordeaux varieties. Today the area is also known for high quality Petite Sirah.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
