2015 John Anthony Carneros Church Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 750 mL

2015 John Anthony Carneros Church Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 750 mL

"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Church Vineyard is sensational. Notes of lemon blossom, ripe melon, and honeyed grapefruit are followed by a medium-bodied, richly concentrated, dry, mineral-laced Sauvignon Blanc that has a long finish and terrific zest. This is as good as this variety can often get in Napa. Drink it over the next several years."

Tasting Notes: Stone fruit, meringue and exotic spices on the nose immediately provide context for our Church Vineyards’ barrel fermentation and sur lies aging program.  Half the Church Vineyard is planted to Musque clone, which offers richer fruit characteristics on the palate: ripe nectarine, warm orchard fruits and honeydew.  Sandalwood and beeswax frame this luxuriously textured wine whose edges are round and soft.  It is generous in its weight and viscosity but its acidic backbone stays true to the microclimate and varietal.  The wine’s lengthy finish ends on a high note of lemongrass and kaffir lime.  This is a serious wine that offers great complexity in its appreciation.
