2018 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc
Rutherford, Napa Valley
Aromas of key lime and honeydew blend seamlessly with the invigorating scents of fresh jasmine and sweet pea flowers, while the subtle smell of a fresh summer stream invites you to jump in. The refreshing, estival quality continues onto the palate where a focused acidity awakens the senses to find mouthwatering flavors of citrus zest followed by a beautiful floral quality that stays around for the entirety of the long finish.

“It wouldn’t be summer for me without Eleven Eleven Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc. It’s my go to for grilled tuna and pineapple shrimp skewers. Sourced from the Beckstoffer Melrose Vineyard, this part neutral French Oak and part Stainless Steel aged bright white offers a vibrant collage of fresh citrus, ripe tropical fruit and savory acidity!” - Kirk Venge, Winemaker
