Scarlett 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, "Estate" Rutherford, Napa Valley

$24.99

The Story: Scarlett Wines is a family operation owned by the McGah family, who are most notably known for co-founding the Oakland Raiders. Representing over four generations of wine growers, the family’s personal touch can be felt from the soil to the glass. The winery previously operated under the name McGah Family Cellars and rebranded in 2015 in honor of its flagship wine, Scarlett, which is named after the founder’s daughter.

 

The Winemaker: When you have one of the BEST winemakers in Napa (Mike Smith – known for honing his skills at Schrader, Maybach, Rivers Marie, Carter , 12C, Bench, etc.) at the helm, you can only wind up with a top-notch wine, and I can tell you this is a TOP NOTCH wine!  This wine, named after the winery founder’s great-granddaughter, is on the list of some of the most famous US restaurants (Gary Danko, Michael Mina, Valentino’s, Delmonico, SD26, etc), and of course at …. Golden Gate Wine Cellars.

 

The wine:  Amazing nose of honeysuckle, Meyer Lemons and lime blossoms on the nose.  This wine is fresh and sublime as the summer sunlight. The Scarlett Sauvignon Blanc is a medium to full-bodied wine that instantly captures the senses with aromas of honeysuckle, Meyer lemons and lime blossoms. This captivating California rendition showcases a creamy and smooth midpalate framed by perfectly integrated acidity, carrying the trademark freshness throughout the finish.
