2022 River Road Ranch Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley

2022 looked like it was going to be year 4 or 5 of drought conditions with below average winter rains but some late spring rains came to the rescue and aided in canopy growth, which would become essential later in the summer. Late spring and early summer growing conditions were ideal although crop yields looked to be slightly lower than average. An early September heat spike with consecutive record-breaking temperature days resulted in a race to the finish. The cellar and vineyard crews will remember 2022 as a fast and furious harvest with 97% of Trione’s fruit being crushed by September 17th.

The Trione 2022 Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand-picked at night and pressed shortly after to preserve the delicate fruit flavors and minimize any bitter phenolics. The juice was settled and inoculated with a yeast strain specifically chosen to help accentuate thiols naturally present in Sauvignon Blanc imparting flavors of guava, passionfruit and grapefruit. Fermentation took place in a mix of neutral French oak barrels along with stainless steel tanks to allow further complexity and enhanced varietal character.

Tasting Notes

This wine showcases beautiful aromas of lemon blossom and lime zest, intertwined with fresh, juicy white peach. On the palate, the bright acidity accentuates tropical flavors of guava, and honeydew melon. A well rounded wine perfect for any occasion.


GuacamoleNo big bash is complete without a good guacamole dip! Here is Jess’ rendition of the classic Mexican appetizer. Use romaine lettuce as chips instead of the salty tortillas to cut on calories, to save for more wine!
