Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Connoisseurs' Guide: Duckhorn Sauvignons have never show much of a bent to the grape's grassier side, and here again the wine goes right to a mix of melons and pears as its main motif. Ripe and rounded and less briskly balanced than its more acidy brethren, it will wash down varied chicken dishes with ease as it will any number of meaty fish preparations.

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.

Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Offers versatility when it comes to culinary pairings because of its incredible roundness and fullness of texture and traditionally has short-term aging potential.
