Ceago Vinegarden, Clear Lake, Kathleen’s Vineyard, Estate Grown, Sauvignon Blanc 2007 The nose assertively expresses gooseberries and herbaceousness when first opened and continues with stone fruits. In the mouth it is crisp and clean and reminiscent of fresh grapefruit with a little spritz that gives it a lively freshness – very nice.
The grapes at Ceago are farmed biodynamically and Kathleen’s Vineyard is the name of the original vineyard planted by Bernard and Kathleen Fetzer over 50 years ago in Mendocino County. To honor Kathleen, her name has also been given to a vineyard nearby in Clear Lake.
The wine is bottled under screwcap. Proprietor Jim Fetzer, whose passion for biodynamic farming is not a passing fancy but rather a deep commitment to the health of the land. Bottled under Stelvin in Redwood Valley 13% $13.49 at Bottle Barn Ceago
