The 2015 vintage marked the fourth year of drought in Sonoma County. The year began with an early spring followed by a long cool growing season; making for a very light crop of extravagantly flavored fruit. Our Six Ridges Sauvignon Blanc was harvested from our best vineyards located in the Russian River and Carneros regions, both of which lie within the Sonoma Coast appellation. The fruit sourced for this Sauvignon Blanc comes from vineyards located in the cooler appellations of Carneros and the Russian River Valley which bring grassy characteristics to the wine, as well as grapes from the warmer Sonoma Valley which impart melon and tropical fruit flavors. The result can be found in this complex and well-balanced wine.
Sonoma County is our cherished land. Located in the Northwest of the San Francisco Bay Area region in California, it stretches from 60 miles of Pacific Coast in the west to the steep slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains in the east. We live, work and sweat this land where the climate is strongly influenced by the presence of the ocean. Together with the elevation of our rolling hills, the Pacific influence generates a wide array of microclimates within our region.
