Empreinte 2014 Sauvignon Blanc – Rutherford, Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers a slight freshness, a slight concentration as well as minerality. It reveals notes of quince, toasted notes, kumquat and small notes of citrus associated with small touches of white fruits as well as a very discreet hint of vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, a bit aerial and offers finesse, a beautiful definition, a beautiful mineral frame, a slight creaminess, a small racy minerality, a beautiful freshness, a beautiful acidity, a small tension, roundness, fat as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of quince, kumquat and small notes of crushed white fruits (pear, peach) associated with woody touches, citrus (lemon, mandarin), butter, vanilla. Beautiful persistence. There is an imperceptible toasted hint on the persistence.
