MIRROR Sauvignon Blanc, Rutherford

Regular price $0.00 $28.00 Sale

 

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Beckstoffer’s “Melrose” Vineyard
  • Rutherford fruit, Napa Valley
  • A great white from a cult red producing AVA

 WINEMAKER: Kirk Venge; B Cellars, Beau Vigne, Hunnicutt Wines

WHAT WE TASTED: Brilliant, light to medium straw color.  Aromas of orange blossom lead to ripe white peach and lemon zest with a hint of melon.  The palate delivers bright flavors of lemon zest and cantaloupe accented by refreshing nuances of peach.  A bright cleansing grapefruit lingers on the finish.

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Snapper whole fish roasted potatoes and thyme
  • Shrimp sandwich with garlic-anchovy aioli, Model Bakery ciabatta
  • Asian style chicken salad, sesame-lime dressing

­­­­PE­­RSONALITY: Can be autographed with Rick's Mirers signature. He is retired San Francisco 49er quarterback originally drafted from Notre Dame. Rick gives back to kids through his NFL foundation! 

TECHNICAL:

  • Aged 6 months in neutral French oak barrels
  • 100% Sauvignon Blanc
