Sourced from two beautiful sites, one in the western part of Oak Knoll AVA, the other a plot of old vines east of Yountville. Very small berries in 2020 give this wine a tight structure, and 15% new oak lends just a hint of roundness, vanilla, and floral notes. Immediately out of the bottle it is all freshness and elegant complexity – green berries, kiwi, lavender and jasmine, lime, and limestone aromas. Crisp and lengthy, but not at all aggressive, it is quite drinkable now and will improve for 18-24 months at least. Far from the lavish and lush style of some Napa Sauvignons, this is a gentle, sophisticated, and food-friendly version for the enthusiast.
If you’ve been following the Bounty Hunter for a long time, by now you know that our “side hustle” is to “fruit-rustle.” We track down “great stuff” wherever it hides, but take particular pride in that which we call our own. For our Pursuit brand, we tap into our deep connections here in Wine Country and secure incredible juice from top houses. We start early in the process so that we can guide the finished product and ensure that it’s up to our exacting standards. While confidentiality agreements are involved, we assure you that the sources at our disposal are some of the absolute best in California (it’s good to have friends). You probably wouldn’t believe where this stuff was born, even if we could tell you.
