2016 Sauvignon Blanc
Winemaker: David Forsythe of Four Feathers Wine Estates
Appellation: Columbia Valley
From Martin: "Although we released another Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma a few months back, stylistically these wines are very different. This Sauvignon Blanc release, while equally delicious, saw only stainless steel aging, a process that preserves a light texture and fresh aromatics. This wine is medium-bodied with mouthwatering acidity. The citrus-driven palate makes it a perfect pairing for oysters with mignonette or scallop ceviche."
Winemaker: Phillip Staehle of Enkidu Wines
From Martin: "Counoise is valued for its bright red fruit character and soft structure. It is also used to make rosé in Provence, and a few plantings have been established in California. The grape is so obscure stateside that only recently did the U.S government grant vintners the right to use it on a wine label. This 100 percent Counoise from a single vineyard in Mendocino is full-bodied, packed with flavors of ripe red berries, smoke, and a dusty minerality. Perfect for summer grilling."
