2019 Massican Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1474631 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is winemaker Dan Petroski’s nod to the Sauvignons of northern Italy. Lemony and sleek, it conjures notes of wet stone, brine and complex, layered acidity, with a lasting tease of green apple and lemongrass. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Opens with white pepper, lemon zest and orange blossom notes that are as fragrant as they are intense and focused, revealing a sleek, crisp acidity that makes all the flavors pop. A mouthwatering mix that finishes with satisfying mineral details. (MW) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens with notes of gunflint, fleshing out to kiwi, white peaches, fresh green herbs and baker's yeast. The light-bodied palate is bright, juicy and lively with crunchy, mineral-laced fruits and a long, uplifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

On the origins of Massican, the winery notes: "Inspired by our roots in Italy, the Massican wines are made in Napa Valley, California. Massican is named after Monte Massico (the Massican hills), the coastal mountain range in southern Italy where our founders are from. In California we cultivate six white wine grape varieties in and around Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Four of the grape varieties trace their origins to Italy – Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Pinot Bianco and Greco. Two of the grape varieties, although no strangers to Italy, are more widely known throughout the world – Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. From these California grapes we make four distinct wines, each channeling the Italian style of refreshing Mediterranean white wines."

This Sauvignon Blanc immediately drew my attention in with its fragrant complexity of orange blossoms, lychee, lemon rind, wet river stone and hints of ocean brine. While the texture only solidifies even further the attention to detail and quality of this wine with the laser sharp focus, and mouthwatering brightness that supports how well this wine will evolve over time. Immensely fresh, and enjoyable now with some time to breathe. But you will definitely be rewarded for your patience if you can hold onto a few bottles over the next few years.

If I could only drink three white wines ever again, I'd select; Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. The Sauvignon Blanc from Massican is the kind of wine that informs that decision. While the world is full of easy and satisfying Sauvignon, there are enough examples to argue how this is one of the most noble of all the white grapes. Dan Petroski puts his heart and soul into crafting top shelf wines inspired by his Italian heritage. This reminds me of the best bottlings of Quarz by Terlan. Few wines give me as much satisfaction and the Massican is a dead ringer from the new world. It takes a few hours to fully open up at this young stage, but once it's there, you're greeted by a symphony of finely tuned flavors. There's sexy waxy lemon rind, green leaf, and a distant hint of tropical fruit. The wine is both taut and expressive (given some air). It's textural and shines with a complex streak of both passion fruit and honeysuckle. I'll be squirreling a few of these away in my locker and maybe a few in the home cupboard. It's a winner!

Tart, and extremely refreshing. Massican always know how to execute their white wines perfectly. Inspired by the white wines of Northern Italy, this wine definitely reminds me of a lot of the crisp acidic whites I've enjoyed there. I'm not necessarily the biggest sauvignon blanc fan, but this wine is truly something special. Have with oysters, or by itself, you will enjoy this regardless. Flavors of lemon, stone fruit, and green apple, packed with zippy acidity, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice if you don't buy a bottle or two...
