CHARLES WOODSON NAPA “TWENTY FOUR”’12 – “Smooth Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with tropical flavors and creamy vanilla notes.”….49.99

CHARLES WOODSON NAPA “TWENTY FOUR”14 – “The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was aged and fermented in mostly stainless steel. As Rick says this wine was crushed, fermented, aged and bottled – with a more hands off approach to wine making. It is floral on the bouquet with citrus blossom and dessert spices. It is a balanced clean wine – notes of a lemon lime zest linger delicately.”…………39.99

CHARLES WOODSON NAPA “TWENTY FOUR”’15 – Shows good intensity to the lemon meringue, yellow apple and melon flavors, with pops of citrus zest on the refreshing, spicy finish.”….49.99

CLOUDFALL MONTEREY  SAUVIGNON BLANC’15……..29.99

DECOY SONOMA’13 This faint white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc is a crowd pleasing wine. It opens with a pleasant mild apple bouquet with a hint of grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and round. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe pear with hints of pineapple, tangerine, and green apple. There is also just a touch of minerality as well. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely.”………….39.99

DUCKHORN SONOMA “DECOY”’16 – “Stainless-steel fermented, this lively white shows lush and plush flavors of melon, pear and peach, making it likably fruit-forward. Amidst the deft ripeness lies more complex accents of wild vanilla and fennel that please and intrigue.”……42.99

DUCKHORN NAPA  SAUVIGNON BLANC’14 (HALF BOTTLE)  – “ Fleshy fig and creamy, rounded layers of vanilla provide a complete experience marked by zesty, mellowed acidity. Then a long finish of lemon peel and melon takes over and persists nicely on the palate.”…….27.99

FERRARI-CARANO SONOMA COAST’12  – Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc has a rich yellow tone and a medium body. There are all sorts of fruit going on here. Initially, you get some citrus and a little pear. From there, it all goes crazy. There is grapefruit. There is lime. There might even be more than that. At the end, you will notice just a hint of oak to round things out.”…………..35.99

FROG’S LEAP NAPA’16 –  Richer and more unctuous than most recent releases of sauvignon from Frog’s Leap, this wine still holds its freshness over the course of several days. John Williams and his team farm organically, without irrigation, which resulted in a particularly concentrated wine in 2016. Its flavors transform from lime and beeswax toward passion fruit, with hints of toast from long aging on the lees. Clean and lasting.”…….48.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST’14 –“ The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards throughout the Paso Robles AVA. The 2014 vintage benefited from a climate that was warm and dry, perfect conditions for sauvignon blanc in the Central Coast.  The wine is whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation to retain fresh fruit aromas and flavors. This light golden yellow-colored wine pulls you into the glass with fresh aromas of grapefruit, peach, and green apple, along with a subtle note of grassiness—the signature of sauvignon blanc. On entry, crisp flavors of lemon, green apple, dried herbs, vanilla, and candy corn lead to a finish that’s clean and slightly tart, with palate-cleansing acidity.”…..…35.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST’15  “Vivid and tangy, with mouthwatering acidity and saline notes accompanying the lemon, lime and green apple flavors. Extremely refreshing.”……32.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST ’16 – “Sharp lime skin aromas are warmed by Gala apple and wet river stone scents on the nose of this bottling, which blends fruit from warmer eastern vineyards and cooler western ones. It’s light in structure and easy to quaff, with searing acidity that carries into the finish. A stony texture frames its honeydew and grapefruit flavors.”…….34.99

MATANZAS CREEK SONOMA’11 – “Light yellow. Pungent lemon/lime and green apple aromas show good energy and focus. Taut, focused and refreshingly tangy on the palate, offering bright citrus fruit flavors and a hint of bitter quinine. Closes dry and tight, with good clarity and length.”….39.99

NAPA CELLARS NAPA’15………29.99

PLUMPJACK NAPA “CADE”’13 – “Very pale green-tinged yellow. Aromas of pear, banana and lemongrass are lifted by a floral perfume. Supple, creamy and dry, with slightly candied flavors of mango, honeydew and green apple. A bit warm on the end but given shape by lemon-limey acidity. Two thousand thirteen brought a bumper crop for this wine, according to winemaker Danielle Cyrot, with 7,000 cases produced. The Brix levels soared after two days of 100-degree weather over the Labor Day weekend, she noted.”.……… 69.99

SUPERY NAPA SAUVIGNON BLANC’17 –Poured a medium gold color and cleared toward the glass bowl. Smells of passion fruit were sufficient for my friends in Napa Valley, and being nuanced with grass and gooseberry notes were swell.  Light-bodied, fruity, bright acidity.  Finished long on the on lime, passion fruit, pineapple and the proverbial kitchen sink.”……59.99
