Emmolo Winery Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

$26.99

New release from the Caymus family!  Jenny Wagner, daughter of Caymus' Chuck Wagner, has introduced this outstanding Sauvignon Blanc from her new label Emmolo.  Continuing the legacy of the Wagner Family's other profound wine ventures such as Caymus, Belle Glos, and Conundrum, Jenny Wagner takes the reins of Emmolo Winery and is making a hit with these new releases! Her family has a long-standing history in Napa Valley beginning with her great-grandfather, Italian immigrant, Salvatore Emmolo, who planted grapevines and started a grapevine rootstock nursery in Rutherford in the 1920’s. His son, and Jenny's grandfather, Frank Emmolo, ran Emmolo Nursery and built a strong following amongst Napa Valley grapegrowers - becoming the leading supplier to Napa Valley vintners for five decades. This is an elegant and refined style of Sauvignon Blanc that is subtle and balanced, with minerality and bright natural acidity. On the nose, aromas of citrus, iron, wet stone and a hint of D’Anjou pear tempt your senses, while a crisp lightness, balanced acidity and underlying notes of fleshy grapefruit and lime zest please the palate. The significant minerality and soft body rounds out the wine. This Sauvignon Blanc was made to pair with food, yet is very versatile. Bottled using a Guala twist top in lieu of cork.

A bit too herbal for me. Disappointing considering how much I like their reds.

Straight forward Sauvignon Blanc - lime, mineral forward, slightly briny. Good value that would pair nicely with a dozen oysters.

Could be me but I usually love Wagner wines but this isn’t working for me. But I do have a little cold. Lol. So it could be sweeter than it is but it’s a little dry and light bodied. Not really fruity but might lean towards a green apple. Again, I’m compromised. Vintage is 2017 on 2/2/2020 on super bowl Sunday.
