2019 Bevan Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack - USA, California, Sonoma County, Bennett Valley (8/8/2020)
My distaste for Sauvignon Blanc is legend, and this really is not my thing. That being said, it is a very well made wine, but for my palate, an amalgam of flavors that do not combine to a harmonious whole. Fresh straw bedding for a stable (no stable aromas), under ripe tropical notes, fresh mown grass, mint, and a milky/lactic element that seems contrived/out of place. That’s all for me. I bet others would find it much more pleasurable. There is objectively nothing wrong with this wine. I…just…hate…Sauvignon…Blanc.

Before you throw in the towel on SB… try Realm Fidelio.
If that doesn’t convince you, then you truly hate SB.
You must really hate SB. The Bevan is a good example of a well made one.
That’s exactly what people told me about the Bevan.
I also dislike SB in general. Russell Bevan poured me a glass of his at a tasting where we were both pouring, and I could not drink it.
Just not my thing.
I am a fan of some SB, Bevan’s is a good tasting version for me, but I understand the dislike—especially if your white wine of preference is Riesling, or some unoaked, leaner Chardonnay, etc.
I do feel that I should say that if you like SB, this is probably an excellent wine.
