"Napa Sauvignon" doesn't have the same ring as "Napa Cab" and neither does the wine. But still a quality wine from a great producer.

Always one of my favorites. Tart, but just barely ripe cantaloupe drives this one. The 17% Semillon really adds to it. Envelops the acidic edge in gentle creaminess and lengthens the finish. 🐺

Apple, grapefruit, lemon, hay, slate and hints of oak & honey. Good acidity and balance.

Great singular purity - not as aggressive as some. Rock steady choice.

Lots of green apple, lemon, lime, soft minerals and chalk. Refreshing.

Thin with notes of acetone. Not worth buying.

Next 🦆, IMO adding semillon killed crispy, fresh and piercing acidity nature of Sauvignon Blanc, made it round, softer and a bit obese ;).

Clear, pale yellow color. This wine is medium bodied, with floral blossom nose, but not so pungent (hotter climate for SB). Dry, with medium acidity. I can feel citrus fruits (grapefruit) but also tropical like papaya and stone fruit (apricot). Possible to catch oak softening (but in background)

Ginger lingering spicy finish.
