Duckhorn Vineyards,  Sauvignon Blanc - 2009

Winery Story

Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent a quarter century establishing itself as one of North America'... (more...)s premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.

Tasting Note

Some bright acidity complements the fine fruit flavors. Look for citrus notes of lemon zest, grapefruit and a bit of lime, underscored by su... (more...)btle hints of pear and dried apricot. Quite full in the mouth with a fairly long finish. As usual the Duckhorn gang have produced a beauty.

Too sweet for a sauvingon blanc in my opinion.
