NINE SUNS Save the Date

#1 Post by David Kaufman » March 13th, 2019, 7:08 pm

Just received the STD for the spring release of NINE SUNS, including a 2016 Grenache and a 2017 White Wine (100% sauvignon blanc). Never heard or seen of the latter before; wondering what anyone else knows about it? Pricing?

Here is the description from the STD:

"This 100% Sauvignon Blanc first offers a delicate blend of fruit and vibrant minerality, which is later accented by lovely, subtle hints of lemon blossom. Elements develop from citrus zest to rounded green apple. The firm and pleasing acidity is balanced by a richness that lends breadth to the considerable length on this wine."

I tried it a couple years ago at the winery and remember it being very good.

One of the very, very best SB's I've had from CA. Really well made.

I'm intrigued by the SB as well. For folks who had it, how does it compare with Arkenstone/Dana/Vineyard 29/Eisele?

Same here for the Sauvignon Blanc. Any idea on pricing for those who’ve been to the winery?

I heard from a friend that the SB pricing is around $80

Thanks David! I can live with that. At least it’s not $195!

Don't think I'd want to "receive an STD"@!
