2019 Pope Valley Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Here's another fine example of great wine made with exceptional fruit. The 2019 Pope Valley Reserve Sauvignon Blanc sets itself apart from many others made with this grape. If you're looking for a Sauvignon Blanc that is overly grassy with an strong acidic backbone, look somewhere else. This wine effortlessly blends tangerine, yellow baked apple, honey, and interesting hints of river rock on the outer edge and finish. This wine is surprisingly very silky smooth and a welcome change to "traditional" SB. And talk about a food wine! We feel that the versatility of this offering would pair with anything from artisan breads & jams to Eggs Benedict to sashimi and beyond! We tasted this near room temperature but served chilled, this wine would be a porch drinker for certain. Drink now. The 2020 vintage is currently available from Pope Valley Winery on their web site.
