Illumination 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley


The 2018 Illumination is an elegant balance of exotic flavors, fresh acidity, and great texture. Aromas of guava, pink grapefruit and kiwi are intertwined with peach blossom and fresh thyme to create a lively bouquet. On the palate, the wine continues with flavors of white peach, lemon sorbet and a distinctively creamy texture that finishes with mouthwatering minerality. Blend: 40% Sauvignon Blanc Musque, 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Semillon.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91 Points
"The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Illumination comes from the cooler Coombsville and Bennet Valley AVAs, with a bit from the Quintessa estate. Made up of 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Musqué clone and 7% Sémillon, it springs from the glass with vibrant lemon curd, white peaches, orange blossom and lime leaves scents with hints of wild thyme, chalk dust and yuzu zest. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant, it delivers vivacious citrus and gentle herbs layers with a racy backbone and long mineral-laced finish."

"Well integrated with a subtle fist of power, this wine is fleshy and fruit forward in apple and lime with a stony mineral edge. A twinge of fresh grapefruit flavor brightens the glass and adds to the overall complexity."
