2016 Rancho Chimiles Sauvignon Blanc
This single-vineyard Stags Leap District Sauvignon Blanc is fragrant and inviting with distinct aromas of orange blossom, guava and tangerine. The 2016 Rancho Chimiles is bright with good acidity and vibrant tangerine and guava flavors on the palate. The finish is long with an intriguing spiced-pear and orange peel character.
