The 2020 growing season on our Mt. Veeder Estate started out with a warm, dry winter. March rains gave the soil some nourishment heading into a mild spring. A summer with cool mornings and warm days led us to an early first pick of Sauvignon Blanc on August 20th, finishing the first week of September, an historically early end to the harvest of our Sauvignon Blanc. These earlier picks allowed us to create a wine that captured the true freshness and exceptional site expression of our vineyard.

The 2020 Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc is full of bright citrus and zingy lemongrass as soon as your nose gets close to the glass. Juicy cantaloupe, crisp nectarine, and a saline, mineral texture from our concrete eggs balance the refreshing acidity that can only come from our Mt. Veeder Estate. Such bright and intense aromas and flavors transport me poolside to Palm Springs or make me dream of making the ultimate seafood tower on a warm summer evening. No matter where you end up enjoying this wine, do not forget to pair it with a fantastic ambiance and even better friends.
