TN: 2009 Herb Lamb Sauvignon Blanc EII

2009 Herb Lamb Sauvignon Blanc EII Napa Valley White Wine - USA, California, Napa Valley (5/28/2010)
Big grassy, honeydew nose. Medium body, oily texture with good acidity. Peaches, lemon custard, pineapple. Good wine for veggies, but really shines with young Manchengo. Tasty stuff. (90 pts.)

One of my fav SB. The aromatics of crisp white peaches that burst out of the glass is terrific. I may have to crack one

What’s the tariff on this puppy?



Edited: OOPS forgot to add, we sell this wine. Didn’t mean to offend anybody. [bow.gif]

It was an EII that convinced me there was good Sauvignon Blanc (though isn’t this a blend?) being made in CA. I had been frightened away some years back by too many oaky flabby chardonnay wannabes.

Haven’t had one in a while, good to hear they’re still on form.

65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Sauvignon Musque

I have really enjoyed the 2008, but hear the 2009 is a step up even from the 2008. Guess I have another wine to try (a.k.a buy) soon.

I have one more 08 to finish before I open my case of 09. Sounds like I should start soon!!!

No rush. I would think these 09s will drink well for a few years. How is the 08 now?

Do you sell this wine for $24? What do you charge for shipping? Do you give a case discount?

They keep getting better, Ken. Maybe I’ll stow that last 08 away, and start on the 09s.

You should stash '08. I wish I had more. The '09 is great, a little different than the 08 but really enjoyable.

I still think the 08 is drinking a bit better than the 09 right now; wish I had a few left.

Remember that the 09 was only bottled a few months ago and is still super primary. I really love what the 08 has done with a bit of bottle age.
