Sauvignon Blanc 2010
About This Wine
Color: bright, shiny gold with hints of mercury
On the nose: good minerality, wet rocks, touches of pear, quince, honey, vanilla, cherry blossom, banana, bubble gum, grass, and chamomile
On the palate: soft mineral entrance evolving on bright acidity with touches of pencil shavings and gun powder, lingering on pear, orange, grapefruit and hints of hazelnuts.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
"2010 was a very cold vintage with high levels of acidity which protect fragile aromas and give a great backbone to the wines. It allows the aromatics to be a little less ripe and more subtle, fresh and fragile because at no time was the grape burned by heat. The consequences of that are that the wines are well in balance with lower alcohol levels but still the extraction of great Napa Valley terroir."
