The Cadden Family Vineyard is a pristine, sustainably farmed 6 acre vineyard planted in 2007 in the North Eastern corner of the Napa Valley appellation, situated on a subtle south facing slope at 800 ft. elevation. There is one dedicated acre of clone 1 Sauvignon Blanc on the property, planted in rocky clay loam soil.

Our second vintage from this vineyard was very low yielding, similar to the prior year . The Sauvignon Blanc was hand harvested on the morning of August 16th, 2016. After crush, the juice was put into stainless steel to begin a cold, native yeast fermentation which went quite quickly. Once complete, the wine was transferred into neutral French oak barrels which added some subtle spice notes and texture. On April 5th, 2017 the finished wine was bottled.

The wines profile is very consistent with the previous vintage. Quite clear in color with only a tinge of green straw. Pleasant aromas of green melon and orange zest aromatics followed by citrus driven fruit flavors including tangerine and yuzu on the palate. Bright acidity, stoney minerality and subtle spice notes dominate the finish of this beautiful Sauvignon Blanc. 65 cases were produced.
