YOUNT RIDGE CELLARS Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Oakville

One third Sauvignon Musque clone lends gorgeous aromatics to this rare, organically farmed Sauvignon Blanc. 90 Points Wine Spectator and 91 Vinous Wow!

WINEMAKER: The legendary Celia Welch.

  • 2008, Food & Wine’s Winemaker of the Year
  • 2006, “Top Ten Tastemaker”
  • Inducted Winemaker’s Hall of Fame

 AVA DESIGNATED: Oakville, Napa Valley

WHAT WE TASTED: The Yount Ridge Vineyard is high in natural acidity resulting in a fresh and vibrant wine with expressive aromas and flavors of citrus, peach, mango, jasmine and tropical pineapple. But there's steely flint and florals with a hint of grass, making what we say "something for everyone in this elegant wine." A touch of oak adds creamy brioche and an ultra long finish.


  • Grilled grouper with remoulade sauce and mango slaw
  • Raw Oysters, mint-cilantro mignonette 
  • Mesclun salad with goat cheese, orange and pecans
  • Argentine Provoleta

PERSONALITY: The absolute best Sauv Blanc on the planet! A rarity for Oakville. Ultra luxury wineries want these grapes. Philippe Melka has pulled grapes from this very special vineyard.

  • 1/3rd Sauvignon Musque clone
