Justin Sauvignon Blanc Wine - 750 Ml
Sauvignon Blanc, Edna Valley
Grapes: 58% zinfandel, 22% carignane, 18% petite sirah, 2% mataro (mourvedre). Geyserville Vineyard, bottled Jan . Winter quickly came and went, leaving the vines short on rain, but in good shape to begin an early growing season. A mild summer moderated the pace of ripening, allowing color and flavor to intensify. Mid-August heat accelerated maturation, and we harvested at ideal ripeness from late August through September. Parcels and sub-parcels fermented on natural yeasts in fifty small tanks. As we blind-tasted over the ensuing months, Geyserville's unique character seemed clearest in thirty-nine of the lots. The exceptional quality of carignane and petite sirah argued for their full inclusion; percentages are comparable to the superb 1991 . By year's end, the blend was aging in air-dried American oak barrels. Sensuous structure and opulent fruit give this fine wine immediate appeal. Firm tannins and acidity assure its longevity over the next ten to twelve years. 14.
