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, the cool climate continues to be reflective throughout this wine. The nose is filled with bright citrus with robust notes of tropical fruit. A bouquet of lime zest and white flowers blossom from the glass. With a rounder mouth-feel the natural acidity and minerality create balance that leads into a long lasting finish. This is the perfect wine with summer appetizers from peach and ricotta crostini, to fresh ceviche, or grilled fish tacos with a mango slaw. Toby Forman and his daughter Lexi are proud to release their fourth vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from their estate vineyards in Potter Valley, California.
