One of the best whites from Napa, as well as one of the most age-worthy, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Estate gives up serious notes of stone fruits, lime, orange blossom, and some obvious minerality on the nose. Made from 94% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Semillon aged in a mix of barrel and concrete eggs, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and textured, all while staying pure and incredibly precise on the palate. It’s a brilliant wine that I suspect will evolve for two decades. - 95 Jeb Dunnuck
White gold in color, the nose of honeysuckle, caramelized pear, wet stone and jasmine hint at the complexity within. Lemon curd, stone fruit, and honey greet you first, while the full richness of mango, pineapple, white peach, and green apple pie fill the mid-palate. Green apple, pear, and pineapple linger in the incredibly long, satisfying finish. Lush, yet clean and focused, with balanced acidity, this wine pairs beautifully with food.
