Provenance Sauv.Blanc Napa Valle 2005

Member Review by drdebs:

This was an outstanding sauvignon blanc that was far less tangy and grassy than the NZ variety, and did not have the oak of a fume blanc. The wine was pale gilt, and the aromas were muted and in the citrus range. On the palate, I found peaches, lemon, and kiwi. It was silky and medium bodied, much rounder and richer than many new world sauvignon blancs. Combination of barrel and stainless steel explains its roundness and fruit-forwardness. A bit pricey.

Our inaugural release, Provenance Vineyards 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, established the winery's style: an elegant yet powerful richness with deep, intense flavors that reflect the vintage and vineyard. With the 2000 vintage we expanded our family of wines to include Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Merlot. Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc, our only white wine, made its debut with the 2003 vintage. In August 2002 we acquired the winery known formerly as Chateau Beaucanon, located on Highway 29, for our home in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. After extensive remodeling and refurbishing of the property, we opened our tasting room, featuring a floor made of staves from our own oak barrels, in October 2003. Read less

Not highly acidic, but not veering into tropicality. Appropriately herbaceous.
