2012 Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc
St. Helena, Napa, California
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $35.00 (winery)
Type: Sauvignon Blanc
Principal varietal(s): Sauvignon Blanc

Elegant, clean, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc that leans more towards the melon and citrus than the grassy side of this varietal. Smooth and satisfying in the mouth. Alluring mix of lemon curd, melon, and a distant hint of grassy herbs. Not profound but very pleasant rendition of this varietal. Still young; may well mellow into something more compelling. - HK 2013-10-26
