The cool growing season meant additional hang time, approximately 20 days longer than the 2009 vintage.  The aromas are focused with strong notes of stone fruit and melons.  The pallet is bright and crisp with a sense of richness that makes this wine memorable.  The fruit forwardness is enriched by the depth that battonage imparts on the wine.  There is a splash of spice that lingers on the long and memorable finish.

Love this Sauvignon Blanc- the stone fruit flavors perfectly balanced with the acidity make for a beautiful and versitile glass of wine.
