2014 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley - 538 Wine Notes

Established in 2006, Alpha Omega was created to offer handcrafted wines that blend the best winemaking techniques of the Old World with the New World and a winery that exudes a sense of place and hospitality reflective of the Napa Valley farming community. 

While the winery, located in the legendary Rutherford Bench of world famous Napa Valley, has blossomed, the essence of Alpha Omega has never changed. Presenting world-class wines in a convivial setting remains just as paramount to vintners Robin and Michelle Baggett today as when the owners and former co-founder Eric Sklar first opened the winery’s doors on July 1, 2006.

Alpha Omega combines the Old World’s European balanced style of winemaking with the New World’s state-of-the-art techniques and powerful fruit and tannins found in Napa Valley resulting in elegant, Bordeaux-style wine that will hold up for years to come.

Alpha Omega boasts a picturesque setting, highlighted by views of its landmark fountains and pond, beautiful vineyards and the statuesque Mayacamas Mountains. The breathtaking scenery makes for the perfect backdrop to enjoy the handcrafted wines made with grapes from prized, historic vineyards by talented Swiss-born winemaker Jean Hoefliger and superstar winemaking consultant Michel Rolland of Bordeaux.

This wine has a balance between Bordeaux-style Sauvignon Blanc, which is barrel fermented to give more of a mouth feel, and a New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc, which is crisp, fresh and expressive. Its complex and aromatic flavor profile features tropical fruit balanced with crisp acidity. The color is bright white gold with a tint of green. On the nose, there is apricot, white chocolate and lemon flower with hints of banana and tropical fruits, guava. The taste is pure fresh Meyer lemon and starfruit adding a bit of granny smith apple, pear, apricot and pineapple.
