2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens with soaring aromatics of grapefruit, lemon, dandelion greens, kiwi, and baking spices. The palate has a concentrated core of grapefruit pith that is lifted by bright acidity, and complimented by flavors of lemon, lime, and kiwi, that energetically glide into a finish marked by citrus and a light note of clove. This Sauvignon Blanc is powerful and refreshing at the same time.
2019 was another banner year for Napa. The year kicked off with above average levels of rainfall, then transitioned into a mild summer and fall without any major heat events. The consistent weather allowed the fruit to ripen at a moderate pace and avoid spikes in sugar or dips in acid. The vintage is marked by purity of fruit flavors that are coupled with well-balanced acidity and full texture.
