An aspiring grower and winemaker, Toby and Dawn’s firstborn Lexi inquisitively asked, “Mom, when do I get to make my first wine?” Her mother replied, “when you come up with a plan, we will help you!” Naturally drawn to Sauvignon Blanc, her first harvest in 2017 was guided by the knowledgeable hands of her grandfather and father, checking brix, and calling pick dates. Lexi produces a Sauvignon Blanc from two blocks of the family vineyard, farmed for over 100 years.
From 100% Sauvignon Blanc in Mendocino, our 6th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc continues to benefit from the cool climate, classic to the Mendocino estate. The nose is filled with bright citrus, stone fruit, and soft white flowers. Notes of lime zest, grass, fresh hay, and honeysuckle blossom from the glass. With a rounder mouth, crisp acidity, minerality and notes of under ripe pineapple, white nectarine, and citrus create balance that leads into a long lasting finish. Toby Forman and his daughter Lexi are proud to release their fourth vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from their estate vineyards in Potter Valley, California.
