Atalon Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Wine EnthusiastDry and crisp with acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc, with 3% Sémillon, was fermented in stainless steel but partially aged in neutral oak barrels. The palate shows complex flavors of citrus fruits, Asian pears, lychee, cashews, vanilla, minerals and white pepper, with a touch of honey. The grapes come from all around the valley, including the cooler Oak Knoll district…
Wine AdvocateAll of these offerings are multi-appellation blends that sell at realistic prices. The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc offers crisp grapefruit and fig notes, fresh, light to medium-bodied flavors and a straightforward finish.
