Apex Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit chalky and stemmy on the nose with a lot of dried herb and slightly dried fruit character that shows a certain peppery spiciness. A vein of assertive acidity greets the tongue, which is then followed by a lovely richness and depth of fruit that is intense yet not sweet tasting. there’s lots of pineapple, green apple and citrus flavors but they do show a certain sense of restraint, gaining complexity on the backend from some light mineral and lime zest notes that drive the long, zesty finish. Powerfully built but showing excellent balance. 91pts

Apex Cellars is one of Washington's most respected wineries. Its three brands, Apex, Apex II, and Bridgman, cover the spectrum from reserve-caliber, vineyard-designate wines to wines that can be enjoyed every day. Apex Cellars has one of the state's most enviable records for awards per wine entered in local, regional or national competitions. All of the winery's brands have received glowing reviews from respected wine experts here and abroad. Apex Cellars was launched in 1988 by Harry Alhadeff, one of the Northwest's most knowledgeable wine retailers and distributors, and Brian Carter, a winemaker of remarkable depth and experience. The combination of Harry's knowledge and experience in the wine business and Brian's uncanny ability to combine the science and art of winemaking resulted in extraordinary wines - and extraordinary success. The first year's production of 22,000 cases sold out in 10 months. Over the years, Apex Cellars has become known as a winery you can trust - a producer of consistently outstanding wine that can be served and enjoyed with confidence. Read less
