SHARED NOTES, THE TWO BEST SAUVIGNON BLANCS FROM CALIFORNIA EVER, BAR NONE!

Shared Notes is a winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana Gonzalez Rave (Cattleya, and former Pahlmeyer & Wayfarer winemaker) and Jeff Pisoni (Pisoni, Lucia, Luli, etc. winemaker). Both had early desires of making wine, and spent most of their lives doing so. The year 2012, however, marked the first vintage that they produced together. Previously, during the grape harvest, Bibiana and Jeff were like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Early grape picks and late nights at the winery left them rarely crossing paths. Now, Bibiana and Jeff do cross paths—to discuss ideas and taste samples. You can sometimes catch them in front of a grapevine, the press, a fermenting tank, or a barrel… most likely with a glass in hand.

These two Sauvignon Blancs are some of the most amazing you’ll ever taste from California, probably some of the best, if not THE best produced!

A Sauvignon Blanc inspired by the pure and focused wines of the Loire Valley, where the rocks “decide” the style. Bursting with an aromatic intensity rarely seen in Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 “Les Pierres qui Décident” is a stunning display; where concentration meets delicacy. Incredibly bright notes of fresh lime, citrus blossom, and lemon peel are backed by a distinct salinity formed from the coastal influences of this Russian River Valley site. Brief skin contact prior to pressing gives added texture to the palate, while aging on the lees in 132 gallon French oak puncheons maintains purity of the vibrant, crisp flavors in this refreshingly dry wine. Bracing acidity on the finish provides the pillar that will allow this wine to continue aging for many years to come.

This wine is a White blend inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Classically Bordeaux to its core, the 2019 Shared Notes Les Leçons des Maîtres harmonizes the finest aspects of both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon varietals. Crushed white peach, Bosc pear, and honeysuckle fill the glass as this youthful, shimmering light green wine starts to breathe with each swirl. Flavors of stone fruits, ripe melon, and lemon zest combine with mineral driven notes of crushed rock and sea air to form a precise, yet complex profile. Vibrant, mouthwatering acidity dances on the palate, while generous volume and texture from aging peacefully on its lees provides an unmistakable richness.
