Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) The aroma opens with fresh ripe pineapple, sweet honeydew, pear, vanilla, and crisp citrus notes of lemon and lime zest. The flavor has lush mouthfilling fruit with nice tartness. A hint of wood, which adds texture is followed by a long rich finish. From the spicy cuisine of Southeast Asia, to the rustic seafood dishes from the south of France, Sauvignon Blanc has a unique versatility, which allows for spontaneity and creativity in the culinary arena.
