Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This year’s Sauvignon Blanc reveals aromatic notes of pink grapefruit, lime blossom, and honeydew, layered with hints of spice and caramel, creating a creamy, floral, and focused finish.

Uncharacteristically smooth Sauv Blanc. Barrel aged Sur-Lees to get a smoothness in the finish. Lots of lemon citrus in the nose with good acid but silky smooth finish.

This sauvignon blanc presents itself with a golden color and an almost toasty flavor before opening to a stone fruit and citrus flavored wine. It presents a sweet palate along with grapefruit, and a late-opening aroma of herbaceousness. This is recommended for the sweet wine lover or a light wine with dessert.
