2019 Atlas Peak Sauvignon Blanc
The Baker Vineyard on Atlas Peak is a stony vineyard pried out of the volcanic outcrops and surrounding chaparral, with low yields and high intensity. Though this is Cabernet country,
Doug decided to plant Clone 1 Sauvignon Blanc to see if we could push the limits on what Sauvignon Blanc could be. In 2019, we had a nice long rainy season, with bud break on April 12, and bloom on May 22. We had a long warm summer, with a mild finish to the season. The 2019 Atlas Peak Sauvignon Blanc has complex aromas of orange peel, lime leaf, vanilla cookies and honey. The palate offers ripe peach, honey flavors, balanced acidity and generous viscosity.
