With it's unique wraparound label designed after a Zoetrope strip, on of the earliest moving picture devices, each Director's Cut label is a replica of a strip from Francis's personal Zoetrope collection.

ALEXANDER VALLEY

Alexander Valley is an intriguing appellation because it features a variety of soil compositions and has two distinctly different climates at its northern and southern reaches. Our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from vineyards just east of the winery where rocky clay loam soils dominate, and a cooling fog descends upon the vineyard in the afternoon to help produce extremely well balanced fruit that is both weighty and ripe, but also crisp in natural acidity.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

2018 experienced a traditional season where plenty of spring rain was followed by warm temperatures in June. Unlike the early harvest of the previous year, there were fewer heat spikes, so the fruit ripened more slowly this vintage with larger yields of perfectly balanced fruit.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of lemon verbena, honey, tangerine, and fig. Flavors of A tropical splash with a subtle hint of peaches and a sophisticated mineral finish.
