Wine Review: This classy Sauvignon Blanc from Lail won over quite a few tasters when we recently tried it. Its different style and sophistication surprised the group. This yellow colored wine opens with a vanilla oak like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, extremely smooth, and well balanced. The flavor profile is an unusual complex blend of honey, cantaloupe, and oak. There were also notes of minerality and spice detected as well. The finish is dry, tingly, and satisfying. The group thought this wine would be a perfect complement for a pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This 100% Sauvignon Blanc comes from vineyards located in the Yountville District and the Coombsville area of Napa Valley. In 2007, the grapes were picked under perfect conditions on August 29th and September 5th. The sumptuous bouquet of nectarines, golden apples, fresh vanilla and honeydew is extremely inviting; the mouth feel is distinguished by a refined texture and complex aromatics of dried fruit, vanilla, and wet stones. I recommend decanting and serving around 60°F." — Philippe Melka, Winemaker
