Duckhorn Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Alluring aromas of lychee, pineapple cake and nectarine leap from the glass, along with zesty notes of grapefruit and lime. On the palate, this beautifully structured wine strikes a seamless balance between its rich, silky texture and the crisp acidity that adds poise and freshness to the abundant layers of bright citrus fruit.

Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a little youthfully closed to begin, revealing with coaxing fragrant lime blossom, yuzu and grapefruit scents plus hints of wet pebbles and mown grass. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of citrusy zest on offer with a racy backbone and chalky finish.
Wine EnthusiastBlended with 15% Sémillon, this is a large-production white that is earthy and sharply high-toned in grapefruit, guava and flint. Plenty of acidity boosts the midpalate of concentration and richness, finding balance in the end.
Wine SpectatorFresh citrus and Asian pear flavors are clean and bright, set on a light frame. A touch of apricot emerges on the finish. Drink now. 45,700 cases made. - MW
