You've got the inside track on Napa's great white

    • This is a classic French blend of crisp Sauvignon (58%) and full-bodied Semillion (42%) that's totally Californian. It's super ripe, so there are no grassy flavors – just a mouthful of wild tropical fruit and a splendiferous, rich finish.  You won't believe where Alex & Ryan found it...
    • World-famous, uber-posh Napa. In this Cab-centric region, Semillon and Sauv Blanc are nearly extinct... but with your support, this insider winemaking duo snatched up two vineyards' worth – from a family-owned historical estate and a meticulously-farmed Rutherford vineyard. What a find!
    • Now, there is a catch – to get the claim to this wine, Alex & Ryan had to make a few promises... including keeping the vineyard names a secret. But, they're 100% allowed to brag about how delicious it is! 

Aging advice
Enjoy today. Enjoy more tomorrow.

Serving advice
Serve this lightly chilled (not too cold or you'll lose the fruity bouquet!) and always pour for your friends before you pour your own glass. That's just manners.

Local food match
We're tempted to go all French on this one with Moules Marinieres (or as normal people say, Mussels!") dripping in briny garlic sauce with a crisp zippy glass of this Sauv/Sem blend. Yum!
