Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
Grapes from a variety of terroirs throughout Napa Valley come together in this seamless, food-friendly Sauvignon Blanc. Estate-grown grapes from B.R.V., located adjacent to the Napa River in the Oak Knoll District, adds spicy peach, guava and floral notes to the mix. Lots from the Solari Vineyard in Calistoga, the northernmost vineyard used in this blend, contribute a range of tropical fruit flavors and pure Sauvignon character. Just over the hill in the warm Wooden Valley, long-time grower Terry Wilson farms Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Musque and Semillon at Rancho Chimiles. The Chimiles Sauvignon grapes lend racy citrus and mineral notes to the wine and the Semillon adds a hint of melon. The juice is fermented in a mix of older French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The wine remained in contact with the spent yeast cells (sur lie) for six months, rounding out the texture. The 6% Semillon adds a layer of luscious melon. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 92 points saying "Thereís an intense purity to this Sauvignon Blanc that makes it particularly refined and elegant. In fact, this is Stagís Leapís best in many years. It has a translucency that lets you taste the minerally soil from which it comes, alongside immaculate citrus fruit, gooseberry and dried herb flavors."

    Comments about Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley:

    Trust me, you've never had a Sauvignon Blanc like this. After a few years of bottle age it's ripe, luscious and ready to be enjoyed right now. If you like Artemis can you imagine the magic they work with white? Great value for this juice too.
