"Our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging. The mineral and herb flavors marry nicely with grilled fish or chicken."
|Frog's Leap Sauvignon
"Our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc greets you with aromas of lemongrass, wet stone and delicate floral notes. This wine’s deep connection to its Rutherford roots is revealed through the subtle flavors of minerality and slate that peer through the citrus and zest tones. Crisp and taut on the palate, this wine’s bright acid makes it bracing and refreshing — a wine of engaging distinctiveness, much like the appellation from which it originates. "

|Kim Crawford 2004
"Selected from various low yielding vineyards in the Wairau, Brancott, Waihoepai and Awatere valleys, these Sauvignon Blanc grapes were machine harvested and protectively handled. After juice clarification the wine was innoculated with pure, aromatic yeast strains and cool fermented. Once dry the wine was stabilised, filtered and bottled.
The wine displays classic Sauvignon characters of gooseberry, passionfruit, figs and a touch of herbaceousness. The palate is full bodied with rich, ripe fruit balanced with crisp acidity. A stylish wine with good fruit intensity.
Food Match: A great aperitif. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads. Cellar: A wine to drink now and, with careful cellaring, will last up to five years.
Accolades: 91 Points, Wine Spectator, October 2004."
