@Delectable Wine this is the Hall Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Tasted at the Taste of Yountville.
Pale lemon yellow. Fresh nose with layers of white flowers, honeysuckle and a bit of candied lemon. Medium acidity (6/10) with a medium body. Clean and very dry on the palate with notes of citrus and stone fruits as well as wet rocks. Starts to get richer with some air adding in some creamy textures. Long and dry finish. Drink till 2022.

Our 2nd wine of the night paired perfectly with caramelized deep sea scallop on sweat miso coulis Asian vegetables. Punching well above its weight it presents great nose, near perfect acidity perfected by the 18% Sémillon. Barreled for 5 months in 10% French oak then stainless steel giving it great graceful concentration and a touch of tropical fruit. We enjoyed this wine so much that we bought a 2nd bottle to sip by the fire the next day.Cheers 🍷🇺🇸🇨🇦 — 4 days ago

Chenin Blanc is Broc Cellars’ best race horse - both sparkling and still versions. The 2017 is hazy, unfiltered, and is significantly more pronounced (than the sparkling) with bruised and baked fruits of all kinds.
Roasted pineapple, grilled peaches, and caramelized lemon wedges. Terrific. — 4 days ago
