Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – Napa Valley

Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh and offers a very fine minerality and a fine straightness. It reveals notes of exotic fruit and fine notes of apple associated with subtle touches of crushed peach as well as very subtle hints of flowers and very discreet toasted hints. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a fine acidity, a nice fat (bâtonnage), a nice freshness as well as a beautiful definition. On the palate this wine expresses fine notes of ripe exotic fruits and fine touches of tangerine paste combined with subtle touches of crushed apple, crushed Williams pear and vanilla / woody touches. Good length.
