Road less traveled

The wines of the Clif Family Winery have always been known for delivering fantastic wines at truly terrific prices. Today’s 2017 RTE Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc keeps up this tradition - and then some. This fresh, bright wine will be the perfect companion for your Spring flings and Summertime soirees.

This beautiful SB glints in the sun like white gold with its pale complexion. Perfect clarity. The bouquet greets your olfactory receptors with ample notes of all shades of lemon, including lemongrass, lemon verbena, and Meyer lemon, as well as guava and honey. Take a sip to find there’s more stonefruit on the palate with apricot, nectarine, and yellow plum. There’s some melon and apple there too. Bright and sunny acidity makes a splash across the palate and keeps its pep through to the finish. Perfect for a salade niçoise - transport yourself to the south of France!
