Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Reductive and grassy, this white is weighty and full on the palate, exhibiting strong flavors of green olive, dried herb and Meyer lemon. Aged for seven months in French oak, only 10% of it new, the wood is subtle and supportive. (VB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Grapefruit and lime flavors are vibrant and mouthwatering, set on a sleek and juicy frame, with a hint of hops lingering on the finish. (MW, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

The winery now known as Merryvale was founded in sunny St. Helena right after Prohibition, in 1933. Wine country trivia: at one time the winery was, indeed, called Sunny St. Helena, and was partly owned by the Mondavi family! The winery was relaunched in 1983, rechristened Merryvale in 1991, and since the late 1990s has been modernized to produce wines of contemporary Napa Valley standard of high quality. The winery's note on the 2018 Blanc: "Our Sauvignon Blanc is a very small, hand-crafted and artisan produced wine. The techniques used go back to the time winemaker Simon Faury spent in Bordeaux working for one of the most renowned Sauvignon Blanc and white wine producers in the world, Domaine de Chevalier. First we use the basket press, which delivers very low yields but extracts at low pressure giving us only the best juices—the clearest with the highest acidity. This results in a wine that is deep and rich with aromas of stone fruit, citrus, guava and grapefruit. Fresh and lively on the mouth, our Sauvignon Blanc is very balanced with a nice weight and freshness overall. The finish is very floral with a touch of savory herbs."
