Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas are fresh and enticing with bright citrus layers supported by subtle undertones of papaya and green mango. On the palate, the tropical notes come to the forefront with rich, lush layers of guava, passion fruit and lychee, as well as hints of herbs and lemon zest.

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.

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
