2019 Marisco Vineyards ‘The Ned’ Sauvignon Blanc$14.00Tasting Notes ~ Delightfully ripe aromas of gooseberry and white peach are laced with refreshing notes of kaffir lime. The fleshy mid palate is tamed by an underlying minerally acid backbone that culminates in a bright, zesty finish.
2018 Domaine Vacheron Sancerre$41.00Wine Enthusiast 90 ~ This entry-level wine from this producer is anything but. It is a ripe, complex wine, produced from biodynamically grown grapes, rich in white fruits with an intense steely texture.
2016 Rudd Sauvignon Blanc$90.00Robert Parker's Wine 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+.
