St. Supéry Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2006
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 its freshness and in the future as it develops in the bottle.
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.
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.
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.
