The grapes for our 2012 Tradition Sauvignon Blanc showcase our commitment to mountain wine-growing, reflecting the gravelly, well-drained soils in its profile. Tradition exhibits a floral bouquet of white currant, with hints of gooseberries, pink grapefruit and Key lime. Aged sur-lie in stainless steel tanks, Tradition’s mouth-feel is fresh, crisp and still fruit forward, with a nice creamy structure. 2012 marks the 5th anniversary vintage of our flagship white wine.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 54% Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc and 46% Lake County Sauvignon Blanc, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Tradition reveals an intense perfume of honeyed citrus, figs and melons. This enticing, dry white is beautifully textured with outstanding concentration, a touch of spice (no doubt from being aged sur-lie), and a crisp, naked, complex style. It shows the French savoir faire combined with the exceptional fruit Mother Nature can bestow on many Northern California vineyards. Enjoy this singular style of Sauvignon over the next 2-3 years." -Robert Parker (Dec 2013)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(a 54/46 blend of Sonoma County and Lake County fruit; aged for five months on its lees in stainless steel tank): Pale, bright yellow. Lemon zest, grapefruit and a hint of licorice on the nose. Rich, tactile and broad; dry but ripe, showing good precision and palate presence. Not quite the depth of the Pionniers but more bracing." -Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 14)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"While not as full-bodied and complex as the winery’s Les Pionniers bottling, their Tradition is considerably less expensive. Like Pionniers, it’s unoaked and bright with acidity, with savory citrus and tropical fruit, green grass, honey and spice flavors." -S.H. (11/1/2013)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Firm, with spicy pear and apple notes, offering floral and herbal tea hints in the background. The acidity is crisp, with mineral details and touches of grapefruit that linger. Drink now. 1,227 cases made." -MW (Nov 30, 2013)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2011 vintage):
"Orange peel, lemon oil, mint and jasmine are some of the aromas that emerge from the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Tradition. A bright, nicely articulated white, the 2011 is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its mid-palate generosity and buoyancy. " -Antonio Galloni (July 2013)
