The 2019 Chupacabra blend from Merkin Vineyards features 70% #riesling , 20% #chardonnay , and 10% #sauvignonblanc . This unfiltered wine has gardenia, quince, apricot jam aromas. Well-balanced with good acidity and a luscious palate texture. Delicious dry wine from MJ Kennan. #caduceuscellars — a year ago
California #sauvignonblanc is underrated, IMHO. This $7 example (Costco) proves the point and illustrates the chameleonic nature of this varietal depending on terroir. Fleshy stone fruit, citrus, yellow tropical fruit notes. Lush fruit on palate nicely set against by acidity. — 2 months ago
Pronounced grapefruit on the aromatic lead followed by faint impressions of dried chamomile and dried green herbs. Lovely scent on this one as it warms in the glass. Palate presents a pleasingly rich texture, grapefruit pith and tart citrus oil - definitely a warmer #sauvignonblanc at 14.4% ABV but it’s well-balanced here. — 4 months ago
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. .
