Food Pairings for Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Zesty, citrussy nose, followed by a bright acidic attac. Lots of lemon and some stone fruits. Very acidic, but long, finish.
A nice, well-balanced wine. Pear and granny smith apples command the aroma, with small tropical fruit scents, floral and melon notes. Bright and simple green fruit flavor with citrus on the attack, some tropical fruit in the body, and a very light mineral taste on the finish. Almost, but not quite off-dry; this wine had a medium body with a shorter, crisp finish. Well balanced; dry but not too acidic. Terrific complement to raw oysters.
Very light, acidic, citrusy wine
Harvest Notes The 2006 growing season was marked by a very mild summer with a mid-July heat spike that accelerated ripening. Mild temperatures continued throughout the fall allowing for a moderately paced harvest. The long growing season brought complex and intense flavor and aroma development. Comments from the Winemaker The 2006 Sauvignon Blanc has vibrant acidity balanced by toasted oak and a rich mouthfeel. The aroma is a combination of ripe melon, Meyer lemon, kiwi, and pineapple complemented by jasmine, honey, thyme, and a hint of spice. On the palate, the flavors are an intriguing mix of tropical and citrus notes with grapefruit, apricot, lemon grass, papaya, and pineapple that linger on the finish.
