Round Pond Estate – Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2017 – Rutherford, Napa valley 

The nose is fruity and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of lemon zest, kumquat and small notes of quince associated with small touches of exotic fruits as well as discreet hints of zest. The palate is fruity, suave, well-balanced, juicy and offers a good definition, a beautiful finesse of the grain, roundness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy vine peach, quenette and small notes of ripe / juicy kumquat, juicy citrus (mandarin …) associated with slight touches of juicy grapes and crushed pear. Good length.
