Lively and refreshing, our 2009 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc opens with vibrant citrus, lychee, white peach and floral aromas. Hints of lemongrass and mineral—the signatures of this grape varietal—add complexity. The flavors mirror the aromas while also picking up melon and Asian pear. Lemon custard nuances mingle in the fruit-intense finish. This wine’s bright, balanced acidity and silky texture make it a delicious apéritif or complement to fish, scallops, seafood salads, chicken and other light entrées.
