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
Very well made California sauvignon blanc made with a nod to Cloudy Bay, but possessing Napa Valley fruit so it is rounder and riper than the NZ variety. Aromas of pink grapefruit, lemon, and chalk give way to a palate of pink grapefruit, apple, and mineral. The mineral note is very distinctive, and makes this far better than your standard Napa SB. Also, this proves that you can have a rich, medium-bodied wine without reaching for an oaky, fume blanc style. Nicely done, and a definite rebuy.
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.
Enjoyed this rare white meritage, blending the crispness of a Sauvignon Blanc with the mellowness of a Semillon, achieving a Chardonnay like smoothness without the heavy syrup-like taste from some chardonnays. Deep golden color with the grasslike scent of the Sauvignon Blanc coming through.
Great wine. Excellent balance and a clean finish.
External Reviews for St. Supéry Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
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.
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.
I was very wowed by this wine - it's so elegant that you could mistake it for a very high priced Burgundy. In fact, it's very fairly priced for such a lovely find. It starts out very floral reminding me of walks along the river where Magnolia and Locust grow. It continues on with hints of pineapple and even a bit of black licorice. As it trickles down your throat it sings of tropical fruit and well balanced acidity. Plain and simple - if you like rare white finds. Seek this out.
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.
