Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

- The 2018 Groth Sauvignon Blanc is a seriously good new release wine from this storied Napa estate. The palate combines weight and freshness with a light dusting of smoke and salted Marcona almond that combine with citrus zest and starfruit flavors. Enjoy this refreshing style Sauvignon Blanc in its youth while the brightness remains. Drink 2019-2022- 91 — 3 hours ago

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2013

This 2013 has certainly evolved but is still drinking nicely. There’s a bruised apple, oxidative quality that holds your attention without being distracting, along with ripe lemon, tangerine, and that sort of cheesy flavor (for lack of a better word) that I often get in Loire Ch. Blanc. Not bad at all. — 2 days ago

Cuvée du Silex Jasnières Chenin Blanc 2014

Otherworldly beauty from Jessica Pratt and Pascal Janvier. This album has a haunting quality to it, but it haunts in an addictive way. The songs feel familiar, but they keep a uniqueness that sounds fresh every time I play it. If you don’t own this record, buy it. Janvier’s Silex is everything to love about Chenin. It’s crisp & approachable, yet has countless layers of aromatics & simultaneously shows a basket of fruit and an ethereal transparent weight. This is just amazing tonight. — 10 days ago

Purchased this because I was nudged by @H.B Treadway, and all the ratings hype.
Citrus and zesty nose. On the palate, it certainly reminds me of it’s French counterpart. Not sure if this wine sees oak - it’s not perceptible. Stones and rocks combine with crisp white fruits. It’s a well made wine, but not in the style that we prefer. Jayson SB is a similar price, but is far better (more tropical and open-knit). If you like your SB’’s taught, and tilting to the dry side, this may be for you.

Actually, I need to correct my text. Jayson is $8 more, and as a percentage, it’s a big difference. I prefer to spend the $23 on Jayson, and consume what I consider to be a polished SB.

Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Trying out all the highly rated $10.00-$20.00 whites to guzzle during the summer heat & Beach bike rides. This is a wine advocate 91 for $15.00
1. Novellum,ridiculous for $10.00
2. Substance
3. This one
4. Matias Santa Lucia Highlands
But basically splitting hairs on all of them,
Matias is the most complex.

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Smokin 🔥 Unctuous, dripping with ripe yellow fruits; ultra ripe honeydew, quince, yellow plum, meyer lemon, poached quince, Asian pear, fines herbs, talcum, taffy, verbena, limestone, wildflower honey. Generous upfront palate, round weighty and full of depth. Gorgeous length, really brings class and finesse to this bottling. — 6 days ago

Quivet Cellars

McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Decided to do a little comparison before @Shay A 's dinner and wine, and wish I could have stayed!! Tasting alongside a 2017 Rutherford SB from Modus Operandi. By comparison, this one was sourced from the Southeastern border of Rutherford whereas the Modus was on the northwestern region of Rutherford. This one definitely had more rounded edges, less tropical notes, more peach which increased as the wine sat and warmed up to room temperature. I would say that the nose of the Modus was a little more distinct than the nose of the Quivet. But, I think that more of the volcanic type soil characteristic of the Silverado Trail definitely showed here in the finish, even in an SB. Hey grade head-to-head comparison, with a very slight nod to the Modus. I think this is a slightly different food wine than the Modus which is probably a little more capable of standing on its own. — 11 days ago

Pierre Prieur et Fils

Domaine de Saint-Pierre Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The nose is very mineral : chalk, crushed rocks, oyster shell. A bit of an herbal and lemon touch too. The palate is acid driven, with a great grip, some nice lemon all around, a bit of width, a very long finish with lemon notes and chalky touches. This is so good — 2 days ago

Exotic, yet focused and precise. Pineapple, lemon and meld with hints of coconut. Vibrant expression on the palate, with nice complimentary acidity. At $22 this easily goes toe-to-toe with SB’s twice the price. — 7 hours ago
