Raymond Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Reserve Napa Valley 2017

Member Review by drdebs:

Delicious and distinctive Napa SB. Unoaked. Blended with 5% Semillon. This results in a wine that's got some body, but is still crisp. Pale straw in color. Aromas of pear, lime, and grass as it opened up. Flavors are zesty, with citrus predominating at first and then a midpalate that is pear. Mouthwatering finish. Excellent for the MSRP of $15

Opening aromas of lemongrass, thyme, and white apricots are layered with notes of licorice and tart fruits, followed by citrus and grapefruit flavors witha crisp, lively acidity. Refreshingly bright, with hints of minerality and a well structured mouth feel. A perfect accompaniment to any warm, sunny day.

While I bristle at the marketing department’s naming a $14 wine a “reserve,” I dare not complain one iota about the efficacy of the wine itself. That’s because it’s everything that a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc should be. I’ve long extolled the virtues of Sauvignons from the valley, an all-too-often overlooked varietal that gets lost in the Cabernet shuffle of the region. It shows good minerality and some lime peel aromas with lush fruit and that same lime peel following on the palate. The wine is also a bit showy - perfectly charming, if not a little elegant. There’s excellent balance here, which is what I want in my SBs. The acidity – a listed 3.18 pH – is right on the money, while the listed alcohol registers a pleasing 13.9 percent. The grapes were sourced from four vineyards around Napa Valley, including Moskowite near Napa, Conn Valley, Robertson in St. Helena, and Big Ranch in Oak Knoll. What’s also a plus, is that the wine was fermented in all stainless steel and not oak. There were nearly 12,000 cases produced.
