2021 as you wish Old Vines Sauvignon Blanc

92 pts Vinous (2020)

Tasting notes

Honey, fresh flowers, white nectarine, pink grapefruit, melon and petrichor lead the charge on the nose. 2021 as you wish Old Vines Sauvignon Blanc sports flavors of ripe Meyer lemon, guava, crushed stone, jalapeño, and herbes de Provence. The high acid spine will allow this wine to develop in the bottle for years. From old vines planted in 1985 at Gamache Vineyard, luscious beauty.

Food pairing: Dungeness crab and lemon butter or asparagus and goat cheese quiche.

Movie pairing: The Princess Bride, duh

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
as you wish was added to our staggering* portfolio in the 2017 vintage. Relatively little old vine sauvignon blanc remains in Washington State, so we are privileged to gain access to this old block farmed by the stellar vineyard team at Sagemoor Farms.Sourced from remarkable gnarly old vines, planted in 1985 at Gamache Vineyard (as I was working in the dining room at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans), as you wish is a unique expression of sauvignon blanc, sure to astonish even the most erudite wine lovers. 

My Mom was a librarian for many years and The Princess Bride was required reading in our home. One night at Michael's in LA in 1986 I was waiting on Norman Lear and Rob Reiner. They decided to make the movie right in front of me. I called home. Kelly loves sauvignon blanc. I love her. as you wish...
