The 2019 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc is outstanding. While hard to pin down, I knew that this wine was "special" from the moment I sniffed it to the end when I placed the glass down. TASTING NOTES: This wine starts quietly before rising up to a crescendo of aromatic and flavorful delights. From earth, to citrus, and ripe stone fruit, and finally to dried herbs, this is a complete wine. Pair it with the right evening and a plate with raw oysters, cracked Dungeness crab, and grilled jumbo prawns. (Tasted: May 13, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

The producer sources from a handful of exceptional sites here, including Hyde in Carneros and Farina on Sonoma Mountain, as well as its own St. Helena estate. Juicy and lengthy with power and substance, it is fresh and well integrated, blossoming in bright lemon peel, peach and guava.
