Sauvignon Blanc from California's Napa Valley is an elusive treat. In a recent Wine Spectator article "10 Fresh Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs at 90+ Points," they remind us that while "Cabernet Sauvignon may be king in Napa Valley, but we shouldn’t forget to pay homage to its parent grape, Sauvignon Blanc." One of the best values is Octopoda, sourced by winemaker Trevor Sheehan (Precision, Introvert, Timeline, Fly By) from vineyards located throughout the Napa Valley, all about the fresh thread of acidity that keeps its honeysuckle, peach blossom and honeycomb flavors in check. Complementing everything from triple-cream cheeses to oysters, salads and grilled fish. If you're a fan of Spottswoode or Cade but notof the price, this is a must have. Sold for $30 a bottle at the winery, don't miss this 50% price drop + free shipping!
"This Napa Sauvignon Blanc is graceful offering a nice expression of lemon, ripe melon, lime and pear flavors that are framed by ginger on the refreshing, long finish." The Wine Buyer, 92 Points
