Editorial Reviews for Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Soft on the nose with gently rising aromas of creamy pineapple laced with a hints of green pepper and canned peach juice all topped with musky floral notes and a hint of lemongrass. Soft and creamy in the mouth, this is a bit fat and lacks any sense of detail delivering sweet pineapple, peach and vaguely grapefruit tinged flavors to the palate with a brief canned citrus juice toned finish. There’s an odd hint of caramel that runs through this. Chunky and rustic. 82pts
Nice Napa sauvignon blanc. Nothing extreme here, just nice notes of grapefruit, lemon and green apple. Nice acidity and a medium finish.
Had with Drunken Goat Cheese from Spain. Very good!
crisp and fantastic citrus flavors.
Grapefruit and pears. Definitely a New Zealand influence. As another reviewer said, this goes great with grilled chicken. Mine was marinated in teriyaki sauce. Perfect pairing.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Expect floral, peach flavors in this light wine with mild minerality and acidity. Pairs with grilled chicken with herbs and a hot mustard sauce, or cedar planked salmon with honey mustard.
Great white wine with a bit of bite.
External Reviews for Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Lime, kiwi and gooseberry aromas. Bright and crisp flavors, with citrus and subtle mineral notes. A silky, full palate wine-but never heavy.
Our Sauvignon Blanc, from the first fruit harvested during our 150th anniversary year, evokes aromas of grapefruit, lime and a hint of tropical passion fruit. Tantalizing flavors of orange blossom and tangy citrus commingle with a sprightly acidity that provides a refreshing finish. As always, night harvests guarantee fruit freshness in our signature style wine. - WineryVarietal: 100% Sauvignon BlancAppellation: St. Helena, Napa ValleyFermentation: Stainless SteelBottled: December 2011Alcohol: 13.9%pH: 3.30TA: 0.68 g/100mlRS: 0.25 g/100ml
Scents of lemongrass, litchi and lime create layers of exotic spice and fruit in this rich sauvignon. The fruit is brisk and fresh, balancing its warm, round texture. This should develop over the coming year, to serve Vietnamese green curry chicken or fish.
Our signature style Sauvignon Blanc opens with an eclectic array of fresh aromas giving the wine a beautiful bouquet of honeydew, peach skin, lemon grass, and pear. Flavors of stone fruit and apricot balance seamlessly for a vibrant texture and crisp acidity. Just a hint of minerality rounds out the finish of this refreshing wine. - Winery
A citrus bowl, with grapefruit, lemon and orange peel flavors that weave together through a tangy, concentrated finish. Drink now.
Light on its feet, with a high-toned medley of crisp lemon-lime, grapefruit and grass flavors. Floral and mineral notes weave through the supple finish. Drink now through 2007.
Smoke, melon, and spice characteristics emerge from this fruity, medium-bodied, crisp Sauvignon. Although a bit short in the finish, this tasty 2002 will provide pleasure over the next year.
