2020 Shared Notes "Les Pierres Qui Decident" Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1556739 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark If you happen to share our love of cellar-aged Sauvignon Blancs, this may be the wine for you. It is not in the least ready to drink by our lights yet has both clear varietal focus and a wealth of still-nascent fruit at its heart. And its aging potential is further driven by some of the highest levels of acidity seen in Sauvignon Blanc of its quality. Indeed, there will be many who decry its grapefruity aspects and suggest you look elsewhere, and we would agree that this wine is not for all palates. But, for those who are willing to wait five or more years for a lovely wine that will always be on the crisp side, this may be the right one. It does, however, ask your forbearance.

K&L Notes

Winery notes: "Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana Gonzalez Rave and Jeff Pisoni. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The aromatic intensity of the 2020 Shared Notes Les pierres qui décident simply cannot be contained as it splashes into the glass. Filling the air with bright, concentrated notes of white peach, lime zest, and white flower blossom, this wine sings as signature notes of crushed wet stone and a distinct salinity strike a unique, unmistakable balance. On the palate, crisp stone fruits, lemon meringue, and fresh sea air speak to the potential of this idyllic Russian River Valley vineyard. Crafted through extremely gentle pressing, meticulous oxygen management, and sur lie aging in 132 gallon new French oak puncheons, this Sauvignon Blanc is a model of freshness, complexity, precision and laser focus. Enjoy in its vibrant youth, or cellar for a decade or more to realize the full potential of this fabled varietal."
