Lovely pale gold with lightest silver green. Big nose of full throttle gooseberry, cooked lemon, grilled grapefruit and gardenia. Round, full mouthfeel turns lean in a citric instant as it pivots deftly to lemon pith, grapefruit peel, ginger, lemongrass and tart lime, with secret tangelo intentions. Juicy and abundant, but lively and bracing in a way that keeps it focused. Impressive Sauvignon Blanc from Napa. .

This is another delayed review of a 2012 Double Eagle Red Blend. The '12 blend is 44% merlot, 36% cab and 20% cab franc. This was a big wine. It needed to be decanted for a bit but it is worth the wait. Upon first opening there was strong cedar, cherry and earth aromas. These gave way after a while to plum, berries and light cedar aromas. There are plenty of tannins for this one to last a while I feel. With that said it has a nice long finish with nice ripe red fruit, a little oak and earthy tones lingering in your mouth. This was very enjoyable. #napavalley #doubleeagle — 8 years ago
