Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

SKU 2557


The translucent, aurora-gold hue of this wine predicts what's to come in the glass. Mouthwatering and luscious, its aroma overflows with tree-ripened fruit - nectarine, quince, peach and Fuji apple - as well as a hint of floral perfume and tropical notes of ripe, juicy pineapple, passion fruit, papaya and mango. Sophistication has come early for this wine with a strong impression of developing minerality. In the mouth, it's round, lush and vibrantly balanced across the palate. Richness and weight counterbalance bright acidity supported by flavors of tangerine, lemon zest, candied orange peel and sweet pink grapefruit. The finish is luxurious, lingering on well beyond any rational expectation.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Sauvignon Blanc gives up notions of green apples and freshly squeezed lemons with hints of lime zest, wild thyme and pea pods. The palate is medium-bodied and wonderfully tangy in the mouth with a lively backbone and herbal-laced finish. 10,500 cases produced.

Wine EnthusiastSublime in texture, all smooth and velvety contours, this fruit-forward wine has a medium-bodied frame rich and ripe in white peach and vanilla. The peach turns to guava and mango as it develops additional fleshy creaminess in the glass.
