Joseph Phelps – Sauvignon Blanc 2017 – St. Helena, Napa Valley

The nose is fresh and fruity. It reveals notes of fresh lemon, fresh tangerine and fresh kumquat combined with small touches of quince and apple. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight straightness, a beautiful fat as well as a very slight unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed apple, crushed brugnon and small notes of juicy / ripe citrus associated with small touches of exotic fruits as well as hints of vanilla / woody hints. Good length. There is a very discreet hint of lychee on the finish / persistence.
