This lively and prolific varietal thrives in alluvial deposits composed of gravelly sand and gravelly loam, with good water retention and moderate fertility. Laird's Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is crafted in an approachable, fruit-forward style that is typical of the varietal and expressive of its terroir.
Enticing aromas of Crenshaw melon, guava, jasmine, and lemongrass lead the way to a medium-bodied white wine with a refreshing palate that offers flavors of white peach, pear, juicy lime and Mandarin orange zest. The vivacious acidity dances on your tongue and is followed by a soft, lingering finish.

"Fresh lemon, green apple and guava on the nose with subtle notes of freshly cut grass. White pepper hints on the palate, too. It’s medium-bodied and crisp with wonderful focus and tension on the finish. Drink now. Screw cap."
