Cliff Lede Vineyards Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

$24.99

Great opportunity to try one of Napa Valley's limited Sauvignon Blancs from up-and-coming Cliff Lede Vineyards! The Cliff Lede 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is loaded with aromas of Meyer lemon and candle wax atop layers of honeysuckle, ginger, and tangerine. Spring blossoms of wisteria, lupin, and California buckeye abound in the upper register of the seductive perfume. The full-bodied, coating mouthfeel expands out on the palate with a rich crème brûlée like texture as unctuous notes of bosc pear, orange marmalade, and lavender honey coalesce along the long, satisfying finish. Proprietor Cliff Lede has put together a top-notch winemaking triumvirate that includes the extraordinary talents of Winemaker Michelle Edwards (formerly of Colgin), Vineyard Manager David Abreu (Harlan, Colgin, Bryant Family Vineyards, and Screaming Eagle), and internationally renowned Winemaking Consultant, Michel Rolland (Harlan, Bon Pasteur), operating in what was formerly the S. Anderson Winery.

Like a freshly opened pack of Fruit Stripe gum. If you like your Sauv Blanc fruity then this is your jam.

To match the beautiful weather...resplendent in a sea of citrus aromas and flavors. Meyer lemon, key lime, ruby grapefruit, and kumquat notes are lusciously entwined in the bouquet as well as in the flavors. Lovely but a bit too astringent on the finish. Solid Cali Sauv Blanc

Raw fish and sauvignon blanc night. Pop and pour. An appealing pale golden straw color. On the nose: Muted notes of grapefruit, oak, and a little floral. Taste: minerals, minerals again, vanilla, pear and lemon....it has a rich mouthfeel with slight acidity..eeehhh, can take it or leave it.

Drank at thanksgiving with Chris and Lindsay. Green apples on the nose but thicker viscosity than most sauves.

This is really delicious. Nice combination of citrus and stone fruit with hints of melon, mint, and white flowers. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Good one to buy by the case for the summer.
