2018 Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc 3 Bottle Box
The 2018 Season:
This vintage will be remembered for high quality, but low yields. The 2015 growing season in the Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May-during the peak of bloom-caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop.
2018 Caspar Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes:
This is our first release of Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc, an absolutely lovely fresh and luscious wine. In the glass you’ll notice its straw color with a golden tinge on the rim. The nose offers an instant waft of tropical fruit with Meyer lemon’s perfume. Delicate floral aromas remind you of Spring time in the garden. On the palate the wine is expressive with a rich silkiness, a pure pleasure. The wine is layered with tropical fruits, with notes of melon and fresh citrus under tones. A subtle spice from the small time of oak aging adds just the right mouth feel to our estate wine.
This is a classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, demanding oysters, grilled shrimp, Thai food or a porch and a glass.
Tempting to drink now but will age for another 2 to 5 years.
