2012 Pinot Blanc
California: Napa Valley: Oakville
Nils Venge, owner and winemaker at Saddleback Cellars, is a famous dude. He’s crafted more high-scoring wines than most. In fact, Robert Parker gave one of Nils’ wines a perfect 100 point score. This made Nils the very first American winemaker to receive a 100 point score. The very first. Ever. From Robert freaking Parker, nonetheless!
Nils’ gift for crafting superior wines is apparent from the first sip of today’s wonderful Saddleback Cellars 2012 Pinot Blanc. This wonderful, affordable wine is a silky smooth treat that Chardonnay lovers and Sauvignon Blanc lovers alike will adore.
Drink now and for the next several years. Saddleback reds and whites are built for aging, so be sure to keep a few bottles on hand for the next few summers and see just how well this wonderful wine evolves.
Golden yellow hues and perfect clarity, from core to edge.
Bright green apple, lemon, lime flower, pineapple, young pear and white peach with a hint of vanilla.
Creamy and bright with pineapple, granny smith apple, white peach, green melon, lime zest and white pepper.
Long and bright with a puckering zip of white pepper and lime at the tail end.
Enjoy this delightfully sunny wine with a fruit and cheese plate, appetizers or your favorite seafood dish.
