TN: 2018 Bevan Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack

  • 2018 Bevan Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack - USA, California, Sonoma County, Bennett Valley (6/8/2019)
    This is an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. tropical fruit on the nose. The palate starts out with guava and then spreads throughout the mouth with strong pear and apple. there is acid for balance, principally at the back of the palate.

    I had this first a few months ago when Russel Bevan was in NY. It was great then so we ordered six and it is just as good now as it was that first night. Maybe the best Sauvignon Blanc I ever had. No cat pee (why would anyone like that?). No grassy weedyness. No negative characteristics. Give it an extra point because it's a good white wine choice that's not chard and is not sweet. (92 pts.)

The 2015 version of this is one of the best domestic Sauv Blancs produced IMO along with I-Block and Fume Reserve from Mondavi. 16 - 18 haven't had quite the intensity or the grapefruit pithiness that made the 15 so good.

Chacun son goût, both literally and figuratively. I prefer a little less grapefruit pithiness and a bot more tropical noncitrus fruit with the pear and apple making a strong appearance.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!
