We believe that Sauvignon Blanc is one of the great white wine grapes of the world, and we aim to produce reference point wines from this varietal. Happy Canyon, with its unique soils and climate warm to hot summer days and cool to cold evenings is ideal for promoting full phenolic ripeness while still retaining critical acidity. This bottling represents an appellation blend of lots we feel express the characteristics of Happy Canyon; explosive but bright yellow and tropical fruits and melons balanced by fresh, clean and present acidity, but without the herbaceousness sometimes associated with the grape.

Wine AdvocateRacy, lively and vibrant, with green citrus, buttered lemon and orange blossom, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon Of Santa Barbara (equal parts Grassini Family and Vogelzang vineyards) is medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with both fruit and texture. It will drink nicely for a year or more.

Wine SpectatorStylish and rich, offering succulent, ripe flavors of melon, pear and honeysuckle, with spicy accents and a juicy finish. Drink now. 1,200 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a light and lively take on the grape, with dried apple, hay, sour lime and petrol touches to the nose. The palate packs gravelly minerality and a touch of green herb alongside tangy lime peel flavors.
