Cabernet Blanc

The Islander Estate Vineyards

The Investigator Kangaroo Island Cabernet Franc 2008

See previous notes. My last bottle - purchased at the winery on Kangaroo Island. 100% Cabernet Franc. Herbs , Tea leaves, Charcoal, Black, fruits, a touch of caramel oak. Quite a full bodied opulent wine showing those black fruits. A product of the warm 2008 vintage in South Australia. A classy wine balancing the ripe fruit with the right amount of oak treatment. Very polished as you would expect from a $150 wine. Shows Jaques Lurton’s (Cheval Blanc) experience with the Cabernet Franc grape. — 3 days ago

Groth Vineyards & Winery

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with stone fruit aromas & spicy floral tones. On the palate flavors of crisp apple and peach, with blossom and cinnamon spice, lively acidity supporting the oak and “sir lie” aging. Medium+ finish ending with vivid acidity and mineral tones. Very nice. — 2 days ago

Hartwell Vineyards

Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Surprisingly has many years left on it, nice $5.00 sale bottle. Better than the new Realms at $75-100.00,
Actually wasn’t a sale, it was a glitch on K&L where everything at one time listed at $5,00, grabbed about 30 different bottles

Les Denisottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Lyle Fass
9.5

Superb nose of mineral, lemon zest, pink grapefruit and wonderful lime flesh and zest. Gorgeous mineral depth here. Lots of earth as well. Almost a Burgundian interpretation of Sancerre. Juicy and insanely complex palate that is finesse driven and so delicate. Wonderful sap and has a grandiose quality to it and finish that does not quit. Hugely concentrated but never heavy and a gamey/savory element on the palate. So sappy and pure. Round like Keller can be. Just a gorgeous bottle. Blown Away. Will last 10-15 more years. — 2 days ago

Yes, I like to let these rest a bit, but they are great

Weingut Tement

Sausaler Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Glass cap belies its elegance: needs air to fully come into a mid weight, substantial Sauvignon Blanc with all kinds of mineral & chalky layers. Medium acidity, green papaya, grapes & scallion. Rich yellow/ green hued. Hellava food wine, though drank solo. A note to self-Austria rocks — 3 days ago

Sauvion

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with scents of sweet citrus notes, underripe mango, pear, pineapple core and honeysuckle form the nose of this light white. The palate is round and a little heavy in feel at first, medium acidity, hints of citrus and honey lifts the wine to a medium finish with a mineral character. — 4 days ago

Foreau - Domaine du Clos Naudin

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.

Vie di Romans

Pierre Sauvignon 2018

Medium gold, explosive aromas of ripe pineapple , lychee, kumquat and green melon. The wine is rich, nearly viscus, and packing serious weight. Long, sweet but balanced, mid-palate. Close to over-the-top in richness, but the flavors carry the day. A long way from Sancerre, but a style and food-friendliness that I have to acknowledge. At times I wasn’t sure, but finished the bottle….. and smiled! — 7 days ago

Herencia Altes

Garnatxa Blanca 2020

I’ve never had a wine from the region of Catalonia near the border of Aragon! Would love to visit the area to see Antoni Gaudi’s architecture in person. This wine made my jawls pucker with the first sip but ended up being really light and refreshing on the palate. — 3 days ago
