2016 THE SETTING BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC

"This wine was inspired by my time in Bordeaux with focus on Châteaux that I was able to spend time at like Hault-Brion, Smith Haut Lafitte, and Domaine de Chevalier. I already had a love affair with the Red’s of Bordeaux with little expectations for their whites until I worked there. This is when my view on Sauvignon Blanc changed and I was determined to make a Sauvignon Blanc's in my home of Sonoma County that could showcase what I learned. I even went as far to have specific barrels sent over from Bordeaux that were made particularly for Hault-Brion Blanc. I studied at Hault-Brion’s own cooperage to see them make these barrels. The barrel that I had to have and ultimately had to ship over from Bordeaux for this wine was a French oak barrel with acacia barrel heads with a very particular toast. These barrels represent 10% of the oak in this wine with the remaining being 30% new Francois Freres medium and Light toast and 60% once used French oak." - Winemaker Jesse Katz
