Handwritten 2017 The Author 750ml
Handwritten’s beloved ‘The Author’ was named for our Sauvignon
Blanc as it is one of the noble grapes that was crossed to create Cabernet
Sauvignon. The other, of course, is Cabernet Franc. The genic research that
discovered this truth still makes people’s eyes go wide. This versatile wine is
also the author of many good times – both on the patio and at the dining table.
Sourced from our Good Life Estate Vineyards in Wooden Valley,
which is located in the southeast corner of Napa County, the warm and dry
climate east of the Vaca Mountain Range allows us to coax exotic fruit notes not
typically found in the Napa Valley. Each vintage is finished off in neutral oak
barrels to enhance the body of the wine without imparting oak flavors.
Our 2017 vintage of the ‘The Author’ teems with bright
tropical fruit, honeydew and kiwi with delightful impressions of lemon meringue
pie and baking spices. Medium bodied with bright acidity, this refreshing wine
finishes with a hint of toasty brioche and a harmonious balance of fruity melon
and citrus undertones.
