Pair this with a wedge of triple crème brie and settle into sublime indulgence. Aromas of lime verbena and orange blossom radiate from the glass, while the first sip delivers a balance of acidity and texture that will leave your mouth watering. Soft apricot on the finish plays against green apple in this simply lovely, 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Jayson Pahlmeyer's mission from the outset has been clear: “industrial strength wines.” His megawatt personality is reflected in his wines, which regularly push the ripeness envelope. An absolute contrarian to the traditional “wine as a meal complement” philosophy, Jayson wants wines that are a meal unto themselves. The critics have noted his success with Robert Parker commenting “Things just seem to get better and better at Pahlmeyer, a long-standing, brilliant, remarkably consistent source for one of Napa's finest Merlots, Chardonnays, and Pinot Noirs.” There’s no question that these are wines that are built for maximum palate impact, but there’s substance behind the flash. While the grapes are picked ultra-ripe, they’re not out of balance. With Bibiana González Rave at the winemaking helm, the wines have never been better, and the Wayfarer project in Fort Ross is on the brink of becoming a new icon.

Lanolin and spice details add a savory element to the delicate lemon curd, mandarin orange and lime sherbet flavors, finding harmony and a juicy thread of acidity on the finish.
