Soil Specific Sauvignon Blanc 2019

πŸ‘‰ I’ve been excited to try this barrel-fermented and -aged Sauvignon Blanc from the Dry Stack Vineyard of Bennet Valley, Sonoma County, thanks to the amazing reviews from @Ron R. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ It’s actually a blend, comprised of 98% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Semillon, reminiscent of a Bordeaux Blanc (winemaker Jesse Katz actually studied winemaking in Haut-Brion, Bordeaux; it shows). @jkatzwine

πŸ‘ This wine has strong clarity and a medium lemon hue.

πŸ‘ƒ It immediately captures πŸ“· and focuses my senses on its youthful, layered nose offering complex aromas of ripe guava, mango, tangerine sherbet, passion fruit sorbet, lemon pith, lemongrass, fennel, white rose, cherry blossom, vanilla, and toast. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

πŸ‘„ On the palate this wine is dry, albeit rich, ripe, and sweet in its aroma and flavor characteristics. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, and pronounced intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. The finish lingers. 😍

The richness and vanilla, toasty aromas and flavors were undoubtedly influenced by the 6 months aging in 1/3 New French Oak, 1/3 Once Used French Oak, and 1/3 Neutral French Oak Barrels. πŸͺ΅

Yes, excellent summary, @Vanessa. I would be remiss if I didn’t share that @David L put me onto this producer, and other stellar whites. But I’m thrilled you enjoyed it.

This is drinking beautifully right now and still has more time: this is more brute than elegant for sure: muscular dense concentrated: jam packed with layers & layers of pure cherry fruit in virtually every form. Offset by spice, pepper & decomposed soil - this is well-knit but not graceful. Really felt the heat (15.4), still scratched the itch for legit Cali Zin β€” 20 days ago

It is a very soft fruit forward drink not tart, or sweet. It’s very delicate to the taste.

I am so happy to drink such a delicious Alexander Valley drink Cabernet. It is delicious!οΏΌ
