External Reviews for Captûre Wines Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Valley Tradition
An elegant, restrained style, this still has plenty of ripe fruit flavors, with citrus, melon and apricot notes, but the silky texture, mineral details, perfumed highlights and acidity that weaves in and out provide an air of refinement. Drink now.
A bone-dry, slightly green Sauvignon Blanc, with lemongrass and gooseberry flavors, boosted with vibrant acidity. Feels elegant and sleek, but wonrsquo;t appeal to everyone. The grapes for this unoaked wine came from Sonoma and Lake counties.
Pale color. Aromas of Meyer lemon, fresh sage and minerals, with a sweaty nuance that reminded me of Loire sauvignon. Dense and ripe, but with firm minerality accentuating the piercing quality of the grapefruit and lemon zest flavors. Finishes brisk and long, still a bit youthfully tight. Classy and energetic wine.
