CJ Sauvignon Blanc

Melka CJ Napa/Sonoma
Select Vintage

Our second vintage of CJ blanc is a beautiful expression of sauvignon blanc boasting lemon curd, lemon zest and floral notes of white flowers, fresh citrus and pomelo with a hint of reduction. On the palate it is super vibrant and acid driven with medium body and hint of French oak. The wine is very juicy and fresh with a hint of bitter green grass, lemon zest, a touch of passion fruit and fresh tarragon.
The finish is long and lingering with sharp acidity and great tension.

Introducing our first vintage of CJ blanc! We decided that our portfolio deserved to include another white wine that we could offer at an easily consumable price point.  This 200 case first effort boasts aromatics of Meyer lemon, dry hay, sweet pollen with subtle exotic notes.  Unusually well textured for Sauvignon blanc, it delivers a sensation of multidimension hitting you with lots of intense flavors and incredible balance of acidity and structure.  The finish is long and lingering.
