Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2016
WS93: "Supple and elegant up front, revealing layers of dried mango, honeysuckle, ripe melon and vivid peach flavors, all set on a creamy body, with plenty of pop from acidity. Finishes on an orange Creamsicle note. Drink now. 9,500 cases made."
One of California's most sought-after whites. The foundation is 53% Sauvignon Musque, a highly floral and rich-bodied clone of the parent varietal. Notes of jasmine, orange blossoms and lemon verbena are complemented by lime zest, mineral and white peach. Sustainable.
