Cliff Lede Vineyards Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

$27.99

Great opportunity to try one of Napa Valley's limited Sauvignon Blancs from up-and-coming Cliff Lede Vineyards! The Cliff Lede 2018 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.

Saturday night I opened the 2018 Cliff Lede Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. I over chilled the wine so I waited until it came back to a more reasonable temperature. Over chilling muted the aromatics. Once it was at the appropriate temperature the aromas came back very nice. On the nose there were notes of white peach, Asian pear, bell pepper, jalapeño, tarragon, ginger, lemongrass, herbs and wet concrete. On the palate the is grapefruit, lemon/lime, white peach, white flower, herbs and nice minerality. This wine is light to medium bodied and the is a smooth oily mouthfeel with a medium + to high acidity that leads into a long citrus finish. Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers out there. Have a great day, stay safe and be healthy. Nostrovia!
