Duckhorn Vineyards:
Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent a quarter century establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.

With a vibrant acidity that is balanced by toasted oak and a rich mouthfeel, this wine has a nose that expresses notes of ripe melon, Meyer lemon, kiwi and pineapple, along with scents of jasmine, honey, thyme and a hint of spice. Tropical and citrus notes are found on the palate, as well as grapefruit, apricot, lemon grass, papaya and pineapple linger on the finish.

Drifting toward the lean, grassier side of the varietal spectrum, this wine comes across as lighter than recent Duckhorn efforts yet seems a tad better off because of it. Style and size fit nicely together and the wines early juice on the palate is ... Connoisseurs Guide. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2011 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 375ml

Apple blossom, pear and tangerine flavors are at the core of this wine, with a nice acidity to give the flavors plenty of intensity and freshness.
