Wine Advocate 89 points - The driest and most serious of the trio is the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Napa (5,000 cases). Classic notes of fresh figs, melons and honeyed grapefruit are found in this medium-bodied, flavorful, concentrated Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 12-18 months. (Nov 2014)

Wine maker notes
Our Mason Sauvignon Blanc is from a single vineyard called Blockhouse in Yountville, a growing region well suited for producing elegant Sauvignon Blanc because of its cool evening maritime influence and warm days. Located in the heart of the valley floor, we’ve hand selected fruit from this block for over 20 years- leafing the morning side for mottled light, leaving the afternoon side shaded to protect from burn. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Mason Sauvignon Blanc has long been heralded for its varietal trueness and exemplary balance. After its lengthy, cold fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, a portion of the blend is barreled down into stainless steel barrels and scattered with the fermentation lees. These barrels undergo batonnage, stirring the lees three times weekly for over 2 months until it is blended back with the main lot.

Producer
Naturally defined by the three mountain peaks that envelop it, Bennett Valley existed for many years in quiet obscurity – bountifully sustaining an agricultural community that had all but forgotten the valley’s pre-prohibition viticultural roots. It wasn’t until 1977 with the founding of Matanzas Creek Winery that the area’s winemaking potential was once again unearthed. But Matanzas Creek didn’t just breathe new life into the area, it helped revolutionize the entire industry and, in the process, put Bennett Valley back on the map. And now, over thirty years after the release of its first vintage, Matanzas Creek stands at the forefront of California viticulture. Each day yields new and exciting discoveries, and the winery’s future is as bright as its universally celebrated past.
