2011 Grey Stack Cellars, Sauvignon Blanc “Rosemary’s Block Dry Stack Vineyard” Bennett Valley, Sonoma.
Peter Young’s Grey Stack Sauvignon Blanc is one of the great white wines of California, and this plot in Bennett Valley in Sonoma near Sonoma Mountain and Santa Rosa is a unique micro climate. If you’ve not tried Grey Stack Cellars wines, you really should, especially their fantastic Sauvignon Blanc, it is seriously good stuff, and I enjoy the Chardonnay and their reds as well. The 2011 Grey Stack Cellars, Sauvignon Blanc “Rosemary’s Block Dry Stack Vineyard is mind-blowing in every dimension and detail with exotic tropical essences, body, life and length. the nose is lemon/lime, kiwi and mangos leading to gooseberry, melon, passionfruit and grapefruit on the palate while hints of mineral spice and lots of leesy richness. Bright intensity of flavors and tangy acidity throughout gives energy and focus to this stunning Sauvignon Blanc, trust me, don’t miss this fresh white if you can help it, it is a marvelous wine.
