2012 Van Ruiten Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes in our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc come from the great Rooster Vineyard in Lake County, north of Sonoma. The Sauvignon Blanc grape is a signature variety for Lake County; the region continues to impress critics with ideal growing conditions and soil compositions that allow for excellent fruit. A slow cold fermentation keeps this wine crisp and fruit-forward. Aromas of grapefruit and Meyer lemon are complimented byluscious flavors of lemon-grass, lavender, and rosemary. Our Sauvignon Blanc is a wonderful aperitif or pair with oysters and shellfish.
This medium-bodied Reserve Chardonnay is lush and round on the palate, while displaying the typical intensity of fruit and spicy oak aromas. Notes of creamy lemon bar and papaya are layered with subtle hints of hazelnut. While the finish is long and clean, the flavors become increasingly full and complex with time. Our experience is that these wines improve in the bottle for at least five years, although they can grow in complexity and depth for possibly ten years or more.

Pinot Grigio has been said to possess red wine capabilities on the dinner table. This versatile varietal has also done an excellent job in enticing the ever increasing number of “Anything but Chardonnay” sentiments of wine drinkers. The 2012 Pinot Gris is brilliant in color and accentuated with powerful aromas of peach blossom, pear, apple and subtly enriched notes of apricot and melon. Our Pinot Gris is packed with tropical fruit and framed with a balanced, elegant mouthfeel that allows the intense fruit flavors to shine.
The aromas in the Glory Days Chardonnay are a combination of crisp green apple, orange blossom, and sweet Meyer lemon. It is a classic example of Lodi Chardonnay and shows all the unique characteristics of the region's terroir. The flavors on the palate show apple and pear layered with bright citrus and lemon peel.
Glory Days Chardonnay is a delightful accompaniment to salads, seafood, fowl, lighter grilled meats and cream-based pastas.

A delicate blush pink color introduces this fresh, lively wine. On your palate, light creaminess surrenders to a refreshing crisp finish of strawberries, raspberry and cherry with a hint of lemon peel.
