Mendocino is “just the place for those who like to venture off the path,” says Wine Spectator. This bucolic destination is a haven for quality-conscious, family-owned vineyards and is well-worth the road trip if you’re ever in the area. But if a wine country drive isn’t in the cards, fear not. We’ll bring Mendocino right to your door with this gorgeous NEW Sauvignon Blanc release.
It was crafted for you by Dawn and Toby Forman, who both come from renowned winemaking families (Toby’s dad is Napa legend Ric Forman and Dawn’s family have been growing grapes for generations). The couple is famous in their own right for their rich Cabernet and Chardonnay, but when our California expert tasted their inaugural Sauvignon Blanc release, she “was honestly bowled over by it.” And we think you will be too.
Named in honor of their first daughter, ‘Lexi’s Estate’ was produced with grapes grown in two of the Formans’ top vineyards, Home Block and Blue Oaks. Showing all the charm of the stellar 2016 vintage, it overflows with ripe apricot, mango, and fresh elderflower notes.
This is really California Sauvignon at its finest – do hurry for your lip-smacking taste.
