SoBo (South Boonville) Recent Press

You may have noticed that the label on this and the prior vintage of Sauvignon Blanc bear the Anderson Valley appellation rather than the Mendocino appellation used on Navarro's previous twenty-four vintages. We produced our first Sauvignon Blanc in 1990. The grapes were sourced from several vineyards on the east side of Highway 128 between Yorkville and Boonville. We decided to label the wine Cuvée 128 which was our way of differentiating the source of our ocean-influenced fruit from less temperate inland grapes. Since Yorkville has a separate appellation from Anderson Valley, labelling laws required us to use the broader Mendocino appellation.

In 2004 we began to source grapes from Bill and Nancy Charles, owners of Foursight Vineyards in Boonville. We were impressed with the wine that the Charles' grapes produced and it remains an important element in Navarro's Sauvignon Blanc production. We were so impressed in fact, that we planted seven and a half acres of Savvy right across from Foursight on Highway 128. Locals playfully refer to this area as SoBo so, in keeping with our small-town's jargon, this bottling is 100% SoBo. The effect of SoBo's clonal selection is obvious; flavors of white fig, green mango, passionfruit and pink grapefruit with whiffs of wild fennel and mint. Gold medal winner.
