Late Work Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Tasting NotesThe vineyard's personality is bursting forth again in this vintage. The character of this wine is branded to the terroir of this vineyard site. You cannot just make a wine to taste like this; the stamp of this vineyard shows the full expression of a sense of place in the glass. Fresh, bright aromas of Sauvignon Blanc come wafting from the glass showing profiles of pink grapefruit and zesty citrus. The mineral laced aromas of clean washed river stone, a signature of this vineyard comes forth as your palate embraces the wine. Fresh flavors of tangerine, pears, melon and passion fruit make the texture and body vibrant and lively; the long, round finish lingers and beckons one to drink more the "WOW factor"!
