Acclaim for Jazzie

Awards

Vintage 2015:
  • Wine of the Week - St. Helena Star - 6-5-17 Link to award

    At the 2017 Napa Valley Wine Auction we poured our 2015 Jazzie Sauvignon Blanc; along with about 25 other producers.  After tasting through the group, St.Helena Star wine writer, Catherine Bugue, named us as the Wine of the Week.  

    Here is what Catherine had to say:

    As we simmer under the warm sun this summer, Lagniappe’s crisp sauvignon blanc will come as a welcome respite. Discovered at Auction Napa Valley under just those conditions this past week, the Jazzie is a vibrantly fruity sip that finishes nice and crisp. Neutral French barrels, and stirring of the lees, bring a rich texture to the wine without adding oak-influenced flavors. This lets the stone fruits and pink grapefruit citrus character shine along with an interesting hint of flinty stones.

     

    Lagniappe is a French term for “an unexpected surprise” or “a little something extra.” Keep a few bottles on hand, and you’ll have an insta-refreshment to pull out at a moment’s notice this summer

    Bright yellow straw color. Creamy, citrusy, earthy aromas and flavors of dusty straw, white chocolate toffee, latte, and dried citrus with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a silky, delightful, medium-long lemon curd on toast, papaya, and grass finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak. A very nice citrusy sauvignon blanc with fun creamy overtones
