Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 JS / 93 WA / 93 VM

Aromas of dried pineapple, peach and green apple follow through to a full body with tangy fruit and phenolic tension, with candied lemon and floral undertones. Ginger. A denser and richer sauvignon on the center palate and goes long at the finish. Drink or hold.--James Suckling

Sourced from eight different sites in Napa and Sonoma (it's labeled Napa County 43%, Sonoma County 57%), Spottswoode's 2021 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel barrels (50%), used French oak (25%), new French oak (20%) and other vessels (5%). The result is a complex, textural wine that's plump on the palate, round and silky, yet also bright, fresh, vibrant and long, with layers of fig and melon fruit that gradually unfold in the glass. I've been deliberately conservative with respect to its aging potential, but it's worth pointing out that a 2012 tasted at the winery was still drinking exceptionally well (91 points). - JC, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is a very pretty and distinctive wine. Citrus peel, mint, white flowers, sage and tomato leaf lend quite a bit of character. The 2021 was aged in a combination of steel, new oak, neutral oak and concrete eggs. -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

People rarely think to cellar Sauvignon Blanc, but this lemon-guava scented version from one of Napa Valley's most historic producers only becomes more compelling over time. It's fully drinkable now, but stash it away for four or five years and then give it a try. - Ray Isle, Food & Wine
