Mission Codename Infatuated
What happens when a skilled French winemaker makes a Napa Valley wine? Find out by sampling today’s fresh, crisp and bright Toquade Wines 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley.
Winemaker Christine Barbe has been making Sauvignon Blanc from the same single vineyard source for the last 8 years. While her previous vintages were solid, they were also somewhat misunderstood. Today’s 2013 vintage is a much more accessible wine. While it retains the complexities of prior vintages, it loses that asparagus character that some found in the 2012. We really enjoyed the 2012, but that one feature may have caused some head-scratching by fans of California SB.
Today’s Toquade Wines 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley has plenty of fresh, juicy, zesty California character, while retaining some of the complexity and style that Christine Barbe has come to be known for.
