Sauvignon Blanc

Patent Wines

Yountville Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Pale lemon in color with a green tint.

Very aromatic nose of white flowers, citrus, limes, green apples, gooseberry, light tropical fruits, spices, guava, lemon peel and herbs.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, green apples, earth, herbs and spices.

Spicy finish with almonds and limes.

This is a tasty Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. Spicy, refreshing and tangy.

Feels very much like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and better after 15 minutes of airtime.

A good pool wine that I paired with a beautiful day by the beach. Will also pair nicely with oysters.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$33.

Le Clos du Pressoir Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Very chalky, and full of tension. Still quite young I would say, although the deep golden color and shy fruit (apple, pear, lemon) suggest it’s best consumed within the next year or two, three. Beautiful next to a starter with smoked salmon. — 9 days ago

Monoparcelle 469 Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019; Very hot today (96°) needed cold wine relief.
Nose has under-ripe green apple, lime zest, peach, crushed lemongrass, green melon, river stones and wet chalk.
Palate has under-ripe pineapple, key lime, yellow grapefruit, under-ripe white peach, crushed limestone and faint salinity with medium acidity.

I'm familiar with this producer, but the first time seeing this single lieu-dit (Les Sentiers) selection. Very nice effort here. Double decanted with 2H rest. 93-94

Sauvignon Blanc 2020

This is the type of SB that I like. There is a richness or fat to it. Light toasted barrel, nectarine and stone fruit that falls off at the finish. Very light acid. Good food wine or sipper. WF — 4 days ago

Les Fossiles Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tried twice! Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone and citrus fruits with dried herb notes. On the palate flavors of apple and grapefruit with crisp acidity. Medium finish, ending with citrus, grassy herb and mineral character. — 7 days ago

Torres Alegre

Cru Garage Sauvignon Blanc 2006

How a couple of these bottles landed in my cellar is a story best saved for another day. Needless to say, this is sixteen year old Sauv Blanc from Baja California by a renowned producer in the region.

The wine has a medium to deep yellow tone with floral and mature pineapple scents. The pallet is two dimensional: starts round with white tea flavors then turns to waxy buttery and vanilla flavors.
Light, low alcohol; the finish is slightly acidic and citrus but substancial.

Turned into an interesting wine where I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. My brain is baffled as parts of the wine taste a lot like a young heavily oaked Cali Chard. Must pair the remaining bottle; thinking a creamy and slightly spicy chile poblano soup. Hopefully that’ll clear up my baffling…

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

See my previous comment about aging these VASO sauv blancs.  They will develop much more depth and complexity. I know it is hard to wait but that is why you have a wine cellar. — 7 days ago
