Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

...cool growing season flawlessly captured the fruit and floral aromatics and focused acidity. Aromas of lemon curd, white flowers, honeydew, allspice and notes of wet stone are followed by a balanced palate with fresh acidity and length. Winemakers Notes

Thought I was kind of "over" Sauvignon Blanc, but this was delicious! Had an older vintage I was convinced would be over the hill, but flavors meshed elegantly and finished well. Green apple with toasted sesame flavors, slightly buttery, but not over the top. Was fantastic with scallops.
