Franciscan Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Muscat Bright and juicy on the nose with aromas of fresh sliced pineapple, Asian pears, and meyer lemons topped with jasmine and honeysuckle perfumes. Bright but with an initial touch of sweetness that adds some richness on the palate. The flavors are tart and lean towards the green apple and citrus end of the spectrum with a honeyed edge to them. There’s nice freshness here and a slight green edge to the fruits that keeps them lively and bright if with sort of grapy and sweet kiwi flavors drenched in lime juice. 87pts

Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings. In 1985, renowned vintner Agustin Huneeus took over the reins, leading the winery to greatness through innovation and a commitment to small-lot winemaking. Today, Director of Winemaking Janet Myers is preserving the winery’s legacy while leading it into the future. “We inherited a craftsman’s ethic here: work with nature, work in small lots, innovate. Our uniqueness depends on the details,” she says. All of Franciscan’s winemakers have left their individual marks, but all have remained true to Franciscan’s signature: bold wines with the rare combination of rich, vibrant flavors yet fine, supple texture.
