Sauvignon Republic Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Lively generous and appealing for its juicy grapefruit and grapefruit peel flavors which persist into the finish. Hints at green apple and gravel as this lingers.

Sauvignon Republic Cellars:

A tight focus on one varietal only. We are not trying to be all things to all people! We are committed to becoming the experts on Sauvignon Blanc and our commitment to produce it around the world in the best locations should give us unique visibility. We see wine as food. It is not something apart but there to be enjoyed with the rest of the foods at the meal. This may seem obvious but much of the promotion and sales of wine treats it as something separate from the rest of the meal. We detect, especially in these times, a longing by many of us to more fully enjoy the pleasures of the table. Wine can be an important conduit for connection and friendship. All of our activities (recipes, events, etc.) will recognize and support this view. We are active in organizations like SLOW Food, The Chef's Collaborative and others that encourage a healthy, food centered life style. The four gents involved in together bring a boatload of wine and culinary experience that should help make this Sauvignon Republic Cellars an exciting and fun operation. We are committed to innovation and practices both in the vineyard as well as in the winery that will yield the best quality wine that we can make. Our decision to use the Stelvin (screw cap) closure only on our wines is an example of this commitment. This closure is clearly superior to cork finished wines that too often suffer from incidences of cork taint. Read less

Intense grass and roasted chili on the nose almost smoky mineral tones as well, smells like a riverbed, A bit light, disconcertingly so, with adequate acidity but a rather blowzy feel in the mouth, moderate flavors of gooseberry and green plum on the palate with a touch of zesty herb and lime, rather low key and boring though the lightness grows on you. Eminently drinkable and friendly. 85pts

In your face (and nose) style. Pungent gooseberry, nice acid, but not over the top. Easy to drink.

Concentrated, with appealing vibrancy and fleshiness to grapefruit-lime and grass flavors. Mineral notes and subtle passion fruit highlight the aromas, with refreshing citrus acidity. Drink now.

Grassy and herbal mdash; verging on vegetal mdash; but with just enough ripe nectarine flavors to help provide a sense of balance. Itrsquo;s nicely round in the mouth, with a soft, easygoing finish.

Richly textured, this firm, juicy sauvignon balances sweet green-pepper fruit with a lot of acidity. For grilled shrimp with green salsa.
