Considering that most California SB is not very good, this was a pleasant surprise. Nice guava and FLUFF on the palate without being overoaked. I had this with fried fish and it was a delight. Great fruit.
A surprisingly tasty Sauvignon Blanc. As someone who enjoys this grape, mostly from France or New Zealand, I found this to be a nice mixture between the two. Pourts a nice bright golden color. Aromas of citrus and oak. The lemon zest hits the palate first and lasts throughout. In the middle, there is some oak undertones that balance out citrus, mellowing it just a tad. Finishes with ample citrus flavors, melon and vanilla oak. This is a nice medium bodied wine with excellent acidity. Has a moderate lingering on the palate. A tad pricey for a Sauvignon Blanc ($25.60 club price), but certainly tasty.
External Reviews for Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
The long, cool growing season was advantageous for the white varieties on the property. The flavors and aromatics are excellent and the wines come across as having a great deal of freshness. The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is abundant with aromas of melon, lemon verbena, toasted marshmallow and citrus zest with a medium-body and vibrant finish. - Winery
