The splendor of summer can often be experienced in a bottle of wine. In Bordeaux, white blends are predominately Sauvignon Blanc, but are often blended with a touch of Semillon for depth, character and complexity. Here is an exquisite Napa version of Bordeaux's summer classic.
With 3% Semillon and a kiss of oak aging, this perfectly balanced Sauvignon Blanc is a super summer sipper. It is a gorgeous bright pale yellow color with aromas of citrus, melon, minerality and hints of vanilla. The palate is lively with thirst-quenching acidity showcasing lemon, green apple, orange blossom and notes of honey. The finish is soft, balanced and oh so refreshing.
