A classic expression of Sauternes, and painstakingly picked berry-by-berry after many passes through the vineyard, we produce on average a mere two barrels! More than any other, Crepuscule (French for twilight) is the wine which stealthily vaulted Swanson to its current position as 'master of the sweet' wine category among our many esteemed peers in Napa and California, in general.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes for our 2007 Crepuscule come from a celebrated vineyard high above Napa Valley, in the Clear Lake appellation of Lake County. The vineyard’s rocky, loam soil provides excellent drainage and moderates vine vigor. In the fall, morning fog settles into the vineyard, followed by warm afternoons, creating an ideal environment for the growth of Botrytis Cinerea.
Food Pairing Notes
air with seared fois gras or any creamy light blue cheese – Castello and Windsor Bleu, for instance
