Mission Codename 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!
We’ve been featuring the wines of Clif Family Winery since 2008. If the Clif name sounds familiar it’s because the folks behind Clif Family Winery have built movement based on healthy, nutritious, and delicious things for active folks who climb mountains, ride bikes, run marathons - or just enjoy a nutritious snack on the go. And what do you do after a physical challenge? You grab a refreshing bottle of their deliciously refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.
