2017 Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley


Winemaker Notes

This wine is brilliant pale yellow with a bright green hue. It exudes aromas of key lime, mango, papaya, and white nectarine with a hint of fresh-cut grass. The palate is fresh and enticing, as grapefruit, pineapple, and passion fruit intertwine with Meyer lemon and lime, making the mouth water. Balanced yet lively acidity lingers on the palate inviting another taste. Boxwood on the finish gives the wine length and vibrant freshness.

Critical Acclaim

COMMENTARY: The Rombauer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is always about how well can this wine pair with food? My answer has consistently been, "Well, quite nicely!" The 2017 vintage is a delightful wine all the way and around. TASTING NOTES: This exhibits plenty of attractive fruit, a textured palate, and a crisp finish. Its aromas and flavors of ripe citrus and dried herbs would pair nicely with clams, linguine, and a basil-garlic accented sauce. (Tasted: August 10, 2018, San Francisco, CA)


Wine & Spirits

Gentle passion-fruit flavors fill this broad, creamy sauvignon. There’s brightness to the fruit, which cushions the structure, the wine full enough to serve on its own or with roast fish.
