Great Napa SB. Barrel Fermented for 2 weeks and oak then put in stainless. The brief encounter with oak gives it a very nice roundness.

If all Sauvignon Blanc tasted like this, I'd drink it every day. Seriously, is there a hotter winery in Napa right now than Lail?

Amazing...For the most part it's crisp on the palate but just before it finishes crisp, there's a hint of roundness and a touch of green. For me, this is perfect! Hallelujah!!! Very typical 2013. It pops!

Melon, peaches, stone fruit. Huge amount of energy on day 2. Has more runway ahead of it, but I think it's peaking now.

This is a solid SB. Nice, clean zesty notes on the nose - grapefruit, perhaps.

Good texture and weight on the palette. Along with the citrus fruits, I detect almonds, which suggest some wood treatment along the way. I also detect signs of gray hair, indicating that the 13's need to be consumed. This does not challenge the quality of their reds, neither does it come close to Bevan.
@David L has got me twisted up in the SB game...

Not my style but well made; toasty with warm vanilla, Asian pear, papaya, and I swear I also get smoky notes.

When I first drank it I thought it was a bit too buttery and strong. Having it again and liking better
