Joseph Phelps – Sauvignon Blanc 2013 – Saint Helena – Napa Valley

Joseph Phelps – Sauvignon Blanc 2013 – Saint Helena – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and quite elegant. It reveals notes of fruit (lemon, pear, citrus fruits) associated with a few notes of coconut as well as slight notes of zest in the background. The mouth is fat, suave, balanced, quite clear and offers some suavity and a nice matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of citrus peel and notes of apple Granny Smith skin associated with a few notes of grapefruit (on the finish), flint and a slight oaky note. Good length.
