The 2016 Blank Stare was our first venture into the cooler Russian River Valley to make a different expression of Sauvignon Blanc from its Napa Valley sister, Veladora. For 2017, we wanted to continue crafting a wine with livelier acidity and a distinctive minerality—akin to old world Sauvignon Blancs—while still retaining our signature style. Sourced mainly from handpicked blocks in the Laguna Ranchand MacMurray Ranch vineyards, this vintage is truly representative of its locale.
