Napa Valley is best known for red wines, but this exuberant Sauvignon Blanc shows it creates terrific, refreshing whites, too.
What You Need To Know
This incredibly aromatic Sauvignon Blanc comes from an organically farmed hillside vineyard in Napa’s Pope Valley. Sauvignon Blanc vineyards—especially those on hillsides—are comparatively rare in Napa, where prime acreage gets devoted chiefly to more prestigious (and pricey) red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2011, Alta’s Fred and Nina Oliai purchased enough fruit from it to make just 400 cases of this wine, the white counterpart to their estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Its prime origins show in the intensity of its citrus flavors.
