Special notes:

Includes autographed bottles by the winemaker.

Bottle 1 - “Block 21” – only 28 cases produced. This wine is 100% Pommard clone and aged for 11 months in 100% new French oak. This is a grand expression of Pinot Noir!

Bottle 2 - “Hop Kiln” – only 68 cases produced. The winemaker introduced clone 777 to the Pommard clone and, similar to "Block 21", this wine was aged for 11 months but with one-third aged in 1-year used French oak and two-thirds aged in neutral French oak. Lots going on in this wine!

Tasting Notes:

Known for their exquisite and highly regarded Pinot Noir, Zoetic applies that same talent to make your new favorite Sauvignon Blanc. Fortunate to source exceptional fruit from an established family vineyard in Oakville, making their lovely and delicious 2013 Sauvignon Blanc was effortless. The Tench Vineyard is located on the valley floor just off the Silverado Trail and is surrounded by some of the most acclaimed vineyards in Napa Valley.

Pale straw yellow in color, reflective and brilliant in the light, this Sauvignon Blanc has a lot going on. Such a pretty wine, it starts out with aromas of toasted almonds, banana, pineapple, wet stone, citrus, and fresh cut grass. So smooth as it floats over the tongue, flavors of French vanilla and papaya are detected and a cool minerality near the finish. The acidity is in perfect balance. Mexican cuisine comes to mind with this wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Light and refreshing, Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect summer wine. Serve with light dishes like linguini, clams and shrimp scampi. First courses such as soup, salads, antipasto and seafood dishes are particularly good pairings. Fresh herbs bring out the best in this style of wine. In addition, the wine's high acidity allows Sauvignon Blanc to cut through the fat in cream based dishes, making anything with an Alfredo sauce base a perfect match. Enjoy also with soft cheeses.
About the Winery
Zoetic Wines Kim has long been a wine lover and enthusiast. She has taken countless trips to wine country over the years, but it was one visit in particular that changed the course of her life. The financial sector was a great career for Kim. She did well and enjoyed her life in Houston, but once bitten by the winemaking bug, she and her husband packed their belongings and headed for Northern California. Following her passion, she settled on Russian River Valley as an artistic canvas and focused on learning the idiosyncrasies of her favorite finicky grape, Pinot Noir. Learn more
