Clean, fresh, vibrant, this is super Sauvignon Blanc from Napa. Cant recall a more sculpted version recently. Serious Sauvignon... pure. The expression of SB varies dramatically in California, for sure. If Bordeaux were the model, this is doing just fine. As with the Lail Blueprint Cabernet, the precision and nuance is exceptional. Impressive.

Veering away from the fresh, grassy model for Sauvignon Blanc and instead showing a mix of richness and hints of honey backed up by steely, gravelly notes, light grasses and whispers of Meyer lemons, this nose promises much and the wine delivers fully on the palate. It is supple and somewhat polished to start yet firms up across the palate in a way that invites a few years of cellaring for those who will resist its current charms. It has the range and stuffing to work with rich lobster dishes.

The honeysuckle notes are aromatic and expressive in this version, with a lovely core of peach, pear and nectarine flavors, accented by crisp lemon and grapefruit details. A pretty touch of smoke weaves in and out. Drink now. 950 cases made.
