Twomey Cellars By Silver Oak Sauvignon Blanc Napa/Sonoma California 2015

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Twomey is the label Silver Oak uses when they make wines that aren't Cabernet. This 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is an alluring, expressive wine embodying the facets of their four estate vineyards. The blend of mineral-driven fruit from the Sonoma County vineyards and the lush tropical aromas derived from the Napa Valley vineyards develops complexity in the glass. The grape breakdown is 13% Calistoga Vineyard Estate, 23% Healdsburg Estate Vineyard, 34% Oakville Ranch Vineyard Estate and 30% Merino Estate Vineyard. The wine shows hints of white gold and straw illuminate this wine. The bouquet bursts with mango, guava and gardenias, while the sculpted palate focuses citrus and minerality into lime zest and wet slate. The bright attack, rich full body and refreshingly long finish are redolent of citrus acidity.
