St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Muscato is like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach, apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.

Clean appearance. Aromas of ripe fruit and florals. Deliciously light, but full of flavor and not overly sweet.

I have to admit, I didn't want to like this wine but I do. Spice, plum and oak. All in balance and low alcohol. Started a little funky but opened up nicely and really showed well. Wish I had more.

At one time I would not have enjoyed this wine but my palate has definitely evolved. The nose had a lot of fruit - grapefruit, peach and apricot. Flavors had all of those with a smooth texture, with hints of lemon (a bit of lime?) and a refreshing tartness of it. This was served not quite as cool as I think it should have bee but it still showed very, very well. Was VERY surprised with this wine.

Two years after my initial review and this wine continues to impress. The wine is definitely evolving. More complex and depth. Definitely will last another 5 years.

Lemon colored in the glass. Inviting nose of banana and honeydew. Nicely flavored with apricot, melon and some mineral. Crisp and clean. Nicely balanced. Short finish. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10

I was hoping for more from this bottle when I bought it. It was recommended at my local wine store but found the grapefruit way too overwhelming. The acid was really all that was left after about 30 seconds. Simple in structure. If it were under $10. I might buy it again for drinking under 40 degrees, but will probably try something else next time I feel adventurous.

Nice wine that brings thoughts of Indian summer, and mouthfuls of white fruits without the cloying sweetness you sometimes get with this varietal. From an under-appreciated Napa winery.

Dense and chewy, this is tightly wound, with rich dried currant, mineral, graphite and pepper flavors. Full-bodied and concentrated. The core flavors are intense and persistent, with a long, juicy finish. Best from 2010 through 2017. 250 cases made. -JL (Vinified with 40% whole clusters, and aged on its lees for a full two years in 20% new French oak without sulfuring, racking or stirring) Bright, deep medium ruby; much more lucid than the pinots. Brooding aromas of black fruits, licorice and tarry oak; Im not sure I would have guessed syrah. The palate presents supple dark fruit flavors but only moderate sweetness and limited varietal character. Finishes with dusty tannins that turned drier with aeration, with the wines oak element becoming more pronounced. ** Only 4 in Stock **

Fevre owns or controls nearly one quarter of the acreage in Preuses. Their 2006 Chablis Preuses marries fruit from a southeast-facing parcel just above the Cote de Bouguerots and conducive to cool" fruit and overt minerality, with a southwest-facing parcel inherently inclined toward richness that was harvested at hugely high ripeness even before this year's ban de vendange. From its aroma through its impressively dense and expansive palate display, through its lingering finish, this sensually extravagant expression of Preuses (in a manner distinctly reminiscent of Vincent Dauvissat's) is totally suffused with the savory salinity and sweetness of shrimp and lobster shell reduction. White peach and lime occupy a discreet position, iris and lily a more prominent one, wafting alluringly throughout. This silken-textured beauty should be worth holding for a dozen or more years."

An intriguing soil character develops along with intense lime flavors as this wine's initial reduction blows off. It has warm accents of agave and corn silk. To pour with the cauliflower in a cast iron pot at Ubuntu in Napa." And, according to Wine Spectator: "Racy and pungent, with gooseberry, fresh herb and grass flavors and a searing acidity that keeps the lemon-lime flavors bright and fresh.

refined rich luscious style with aromas of nectarines, peach and ripe cantaloupe. On the palate the mouthwatering flavors of peaches and nectarines are completely filled out with a subtle mineral quality. This is a unique bottle of wine to be enjoyed now for it’s freshness and in the future as it develops in the bottle.

Aromas jump from the glass with abundant fresh green lime and grapefruit, combined with subtle notes of melon and orange rind. The flavors are full, round and vibrant, textured with the same green lime and grapefruit, and followed by refreshing tones of citrus and crisp acidity.

Wine Tasting NotesPerfumed aromas of orchard ripe peaches and stewed apricots. Flavors follow with peaches and apricot, accompanied by notes of cantaloupe and lychees, with ripe density and balanced acidity. Our 'tropical fruit basket' in a glass!
