2020 Banshee Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This 2020 Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant nose of tropical fruits, pineapple and papaya. Flavors of zesty lime, rich lemon curd and a wonderful minerality lead to a luscious, round mid-palate. A beautifully balanced and acid driven wine with citrus zest and a hint of sea salt that surprises at every sip.
Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from a combination of vineyards in the Russian River and Sonoma Valleys. The warm days and cool evenings of these regions are perfect for our style of Sauvignon Blanc: fruit-driven with a backbone of lipsmacking acidity. About 30% is made up of the musqué clone of Sauvignon Blanc to really “power up” and highlight the floral aspects of the wine (think x-men).
