Faustini Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Only 282 cases were made of this high pedigree white made of 100% Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc from Oakville. Aged in 100% Stainless Steel, this wine's aromatic profile is packed with ripe pear, fresh melon, with an underlying citrus element that brightens up the overall experience. On the palate, it is refreshing, showing flavors of melon, pineapple and juicy grapefruit and a balanced acidity that lengthens the finish. An amazing value in the realm of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Faustini is the Napa Valley passion project of our dear friends Anthony and Michelle Faustini. After much research during the summer of 2005, this enthusiastic couple started their first Cabernet project with fruit sourced from the illustrious Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard in St. Helena, and never looked back. Their winemaker Kian Tavakoli worked at both Opus One and Clos du Val, and is a graduate of UC Davis. With Faustini wines, it's all about using prime vineyard sites and crafting rich, balanced, elegant wines. In addition to sourcing Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, they use fruit from Galleron Road Vineyard in Rutherford, Howell Mountain and Coombsville Vineyard in Napa Valley.
