Vineyard 29 Sauvignon Blanc 2006, 750mL (WA92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Vineyard 29 Sauvignon Blanc

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The medium-bodied, aromatic, juicy 2006 Sauvignon Blanc reveals beautiful aromas of melons, figs, honeysuckle, and subtle earth along with admirable underlying acidity.`Proprietor Chuck McMinn and his winemaker, Philippe Melka, continue to fashion one of Napa`s finest negociant blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, offering it at a reasonable price for a high end Napa Cabernet. The Aida Vineyard, situated between St. Helena and Calistoga, was a source of superb Zinfandel when the fruit was purchased by Larry Turley for Turley Wine Cellars. At Vineyard 29, they have continued to blend it with Petite Sirah, and age it in French oak. The most limited offering in this portfolio is the Sauvignon Blanc (100 or so cases produced). This 100% Sauvignon Blanc is aged for an unusually long time (16 months) in 100% new French oak. However, the oak is never noticeable in these cuvees as they are meant to replicate a fine white Bordeaux capable of aging. A wine I reviewed last year, the 2005, is still drinking fabulously well.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
