The Heritance 2011 Sauvignon Blanc blends Sauvignon Blanc grapes from three vineyards in Napa Valley (Rutherford, Oakville, and Suscol Hills sub regions) with just a touch of Roussanne from eastern Paso Robles.

Its aromas are typical of Sauvignon Blancs with good citrus notes and just a hint of ripe grapefruit, but the palate is fresh and round with nice acidity blending tropical flavors with passion fruit and guava undertones (showing some influence from the richer-flavored Roussanne). This assemblage of Sauvignon Blanc and Roussance is smooth and well balanced with great complexity and a long finish.
