Fantastic new Sauvignon Blanc from one of our favorite small producers, Eric Kent. Hurry while it's still available.
90 Points Wine Spectator: "Vivid and intense, with honeysuckle, peach and citrus flavors that are bright and juicy, showing a hint of lemon verbena on the long, juicy, supple finish. Drink now. 745 cases made."
One of the best Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs we've discovered.
The Altamura Sauvignon Blanc comes from the winery's 4-acre 18-year-old dry-farmed vineyard which sits at an altitude of 850 feet. The wine is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months resulting in a wine of great depth and complexity, displaying the flavor and textural profile more like a white Bordeaux than a California Sauvignon Blanc. Very limited production of 500 cases.
