2017 Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

$29.95

We flipped for this wine’s fresh, vibrant, drippy-green-melon personality. This gorgeous Sauvignon is blended from Duckhorn's estate vineyards and other select sites in the Napa Valley. It displays a wonderful interplay of citrus notes (grapefruit rind, meyer lemon) and succulent tropical flavors like starfruit and pineapple. Knockout Sauvignon, just as much at home at an elegant dinner party as it is in the galvanized ice bucket.

As Duckhorn Vineyards approaches their 40th anniversary, the estate’s reputation has never been better. Ask any wine lover, and they’re sure to know the name Duckhorn. That’s at least due, in part, to their dedication to making great Merlot as a stand-out varietal wine from the beginning. They were the first house to take Merlot seriously, and their efforts were rewarded by essentially becoming the benchmark for that varietal in California. If there was going to be one high-end Merlot on a sommelier’s wine list, more often than not, it was Duckhorn. Dan and Margaret Duckhorn founded Duckhorn Vineyards in 1978 with several hundred cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and have long been recognized as one of Napa Valleys’ leading lights as a premier producer of Bordeaux varietal wines.
