Mimbres Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Pale lemon in color.

Fruity nose of lemons, citrus, pineapples, minerals, kiwifruit, light white flowers, green apples and white pepper.

Medium-plus in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with lemon juice, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices, limes, tropical fruits and pineapples.

Nice length on the finish with tangy limes.

This is a very tasty surprise. This is my first Arizona wine and that's a good start.

An easy drinking and well balanced Sauvignon Blanc. Tangy and enjoyable by itself or with food.
Neither tart nor bitter, just the way I like it.

Good right out of the bottle and good as a sipping wine.

I had it all by itself, by the lake.

12.4% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$28.

As I commented about a Syrah tasted by ESF from Michigan, it’s great to see tastings from the lesser known wine states in the USA.

@Bob McDonald I love trying wine from New regions

Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru 2015

Chalk, seashell, green apple and green gooseberries. Some lily and honeysuckle. And white pepper on the finish. Powerful, tensely coiled, with screaming acid. Not super approachable now but serious wine that should age well. — 12 days ago

La Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. A bit more than a year since my last btl. On the nose: loads of grassy notes and sour apple, with some lemon peel in the background. On the palate: excellent acidity, and good juiciness with sweet apple, vanilla, and loads of wet stone. Comes off as sweeter than I remember. A touch short on the finish, which shows juicy with black pepper spice and the smallest bit of heat. — 8 days ago

Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

short breaths will engulf you in all things lime: juice, zest, aid, ice ~ but then deeper breaths allow a spectrum including Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, tonic, minerals, blossoms, rainbow sherbet and orange marmalade resting atop shortbread

it’s like a mix of citrus juices with peach and mango nectar ~ simultaneously sharp acidity and minerality with a nearly creamy sensation ~ perplexing yet ultimately enjoyable

Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of gooseberry and grassy tropical fruit. Juicy (medium) acidity leads the medium bodied palate of gooseberry, underripe guava, and lemongrass. Medium short finish. Loire Valley by way of California results in a wonderfully flavorful SB with just enough acidity and grass surrounding abundant fruit. French white for American tastes. Soft enough for a sipper with just enough structure for a meal. Enjoy now through next year. — 9 days ago

Columbia Valley Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2019

Pulled another domestic Chenin... glad I did. Lovely concentrated, complex Old Vine Chenin from WA Columbia Valley. Med weight, nice round full texture. Really nice fruit/acid balance...lime, lemon, blood orange hints with green grass and savory herbal notes. Great accompaniment to Halibut, Bass, and herbed, pickled beets with rice pilaf. Chenin Blanc is fast becoming one of my favorite food wines. So much more interesting than Sauvignon Blanc. — 9 days ago

9.7

This is crazy. One of the most expressive noses I’ve ever smelled on any wine ever. An assault like no other. Lime, white flowers, and I mean serious white flowers. Some slate. Apple, discreet wood. So refined. This is so smelly I love it. So airy, mineral and expansive. Sick, sick, sick. Wow. Wow. So juicy, super concentrated but ultra refined and super juicy. It’s got a level of refinement I’ve never encountered on Pinot Blanc before. No hard edges at all. Very very discreet oak. Man he is a genius with wood. The elegance and completeness is top notch. The sap is wonderful and even the sap on the mid and finish is elegant. This is refined like only a *** from Molitor can be. Just sick. Some swimming pool aromas after air. It is maddeningly clean. So sleek, so juicy, lime zest and pith flavors and a slathering of slate on the super precise and amazingly delineated finish. And man is it long. There is nothing like wine in Germany. Genius. 9.7 for now. Ok after some air the nose is crazy. Super crazy. Pungent, complex and beautiful. — 10 days ago

9.0

I tend to agree with my buddy Matt Kramer who maintains that the single most reliably tasty wine in the world is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. What that means to me is if you buy a bottle for $15 - $25 you almost always are going to get something that a) tastes like you expect it to and b) is delicious (assuming you like the way that NZ Savvy tastes). This here bottle is no exception to that rule with its passionfruit, green apple, and cut grass aromas and more of the same delicious green fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is all kiwi fruit and green apple and the acidity bright and mouthwatering. This was a press sample. — 10 days ago

Lodi Chenin Blanc 2019

Popped and poured. White flowers, lanolin, honey, stone fruits, melon, a touch of citrus. This comes across as medium acid...which I have to say, I expect more from Chenin, but this works with aplomb. Maybe the acid is sneaky hidden? The finish is long...so maybe it’s there? Anyway, this ranks as one of the best wines made in Lodi. Massive props to Tegan and Olivia. — 6 days ago
