2018 Salvestrin ‘Crystal Springs Vineyard’ Sauvignon Blanc$24.00James Suckling 90: Quite a dense sauvignon with grass and fennel undertones to the sliced-pear and green-apple character. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Layered texture. Drink now.
2016 Rudd Sauvignon Blanc$89.99Wine Advocate 94: Composed of 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris and 7% Sémillon fermented 17% in new oak, 48% in neutral oak and 35% in concrete, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Mt. Veeder has quite an earthy/mineral nose to begin, featuring notes of wet pebbles, chalk dust and damp moss over a core of ripe peaches, lemon curd and dried herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate has great vivacity and depth, sporting a beautifully chewy phenolic texture and rasping backbone of acidity to support the intense citrus and herbal flavors, finishing on a lingering chalky note. Still very youthful, forget it for a year or two and drink it over the next 10-12 years+.
