Regular price $24.00 $18.99 Sale

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Pope Valley and Rutherford fruit
  • 1/2 Sauvignon Musque clone gives awesome aromatics
  • Captures the true characters of the two vineyards

WINEMAKER: Rob Lawson (Ghost Block, Pavi, Fisticuffs) with Proprietor Rick Mirer, a retired San Francisco 49er.

AVA DESIGNATED: Rutherford and Pope Valley, Napa Valley

WHAT WE TASTED: Brilliant, light to medium straw color.  Aromas of orange blossom lead to ripe white peach and lemon zest with a hint of melon.  The palate delivers bright flavors of lemon zest and cantaloupe accented by refreshing nuances of peach.  A bright cleansing grapefruit lingers on the finish.

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Snapper whole fish roasted potatoes and thyme
  • Shrimp sandwich with garlic-anchovy aioli, Model Bakery ciabatta
  • Asian style chicken salad, sesame-lime dressing 

PERSONALITY: Can be autographed with Rick's Mirers signature. He is retired San Francisco 49er quarterback originally drafted from Notre Dame. Rick gives back to kids through his NFL foundation. Support!

TECHNICAL:

  • Whole cluster pressed
  • Sauv Blanc clone 1
  • Aged in neutral French oak barrels
