| 2008 Provenance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc ( Top 100 Wine)|
91 points and #56 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009:
"Key lime, passion fruit, melon and nectarine flavors are ripe, juicy and fleshy, with great intensity, a vivid acidity and terrific focus and clarity. Drink now." (Aug. 31, 2009) And from the Wine Enthusiast: "A very nice Sauvignon Blanc that shows Sancerre-like minerality. Pleases for its crisp acidity and firm steeliness that anchors he Meyer lemon, lime, vanilla and honeysuckle flavors. A touch of Semillon adds fatter notes of cashew." (12/09)
Only in rare years does the combination of cluster structure, timing and weather result in a favorable outcome for botrytis in its best and purest form. 2005 for us was one of those years. Aromas of tangy honey and pink grapefruit meld into brilliant flavors of rich creamy honey, vanilla and spice. The balanced acidity makes it tangy and clean- impossible to resist another sip.
Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with salads, poultry, seafood, fruit and mild cheese.
