2013 Quivet Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, Tench Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley

2013 brought us another perfect set of weather patterns to produce a prodigious and thought provoking version of this wine.  We love the Tench Vineyard for its simplicity and location.  2013 Quivet Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Tench Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley Perched neighborly to Screaming Eagle, this is one of the best terroirs in the Napa Valley.  The dark grey soils filled with shale and river rock excite us as we walk the vineyard rows and reiterate to us that this is Sauvignon Blanc heaven.  This is a very unique and special spot to grow this varietal. 

Citrus blossom, sweet butter, honeysuckle and a hint of Clementine introduce the senses to a mélange of flavors and aromas.  Flavors of crisp Asian pear, lemon rind and a repetition of mineral and citrus notes create a bright and lively mid-palate which is framed perfectly by natural acidity.  Nuances of passion fruit, kiwi and honeycomb give this wine a beautiful lingering finish which flaunts its balance and body.

It will drink well in its youth and age gracefully for many years.
