Review date: June 14, 2017

Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa opens with fragrant and appealing lime and green melon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and round. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple and Anjou pear blend with hints of white pepper, lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger nicely. We would serve this Sauvignon Blanc slightly chilled with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This crisp Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is fermented and aged in stainless steel. With aromas of stone fruit and freshly cut herbs followed by grapefruit and melon flavors on the palate, this wine is best enjoyed in its youth.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
