Overview of the Wine
Krutz Family Cellars was founded in summer of 2003 in Monterey County when Patrick Krutz produced sixty cases of wine. The idea was to purchase a ton of grapes a year in order to produce a small amount of wine for family and friends. However, demand soon changed that plan and Krutz Family Cellars continues to grow in an effort to supply that demand. In 2011 Bryan and Cole Krutz joined their brother Patrick as owners and Krutz Family Cellars is now a family owned winery located in Sonoma County.
Since 2003, Krutz Family Cellars has included a Magnolia flower on each bottle of wine that it has produced. The Magnolia, the state flower and tree of Mississippi, is a symbol of our southern roots. It not only represents where we are from, but also our way of life- true, honest, and fun.

Winemaker Tasting Notes
Bursting tropical aromatics of stone fruit, guava and kiwi. This unfiltered approach, along with 100% new French oak and no malolactic fermentation, gives way to a bright but textured and long palette. Flavors of honeydew melon, white peach and a touch of lime all are found woven through this rare, old vine Sauvignon Blanc. Rutherford dust isn’t only for reds.
94 Points - Review Ian Blackburn
What a discovery here; white Bordeaux inspired but with high grade California fruit. This aromatic wonder was an amazing find this week, showcasing detailed and complex fruit with beautiful use of french oak! Magnificent reaction from the tasting group. The wine has nice integration and fruit ranges from melon, to white peach - pink grapefruit and tropical fruits as well. Color 14/15, Aroma 24/25, Body 23/25, Overall 33/35 = 94 points - really fantastic.
