Shannon Ridge Sauvignon Blanc
California is known for its deliciously ripe, fruit-forward Sauvignon Blancs. The only thing we don’t like: Napa prices. Instead, we highly recommend checking out neighboring Lake County. Sustainable winery Shannon Ridge produces this bombastic Savvy B from high-elevation vineyards with volcanic soils, creating a gorgeously concentrated wine with prominent fruit. Enticing tropical aromas lead into a full-bodied palate with flavors of mango, melon, grapefruit, and lemongrass. Hints of gooseberry and steel lift this creamy wine, leading into a long, fruity, and citrusy finish.
“A good sense of concentration and rather full body make this a substantial, attractive wine. It stays well balanced due to tangy, underlying acidity that supports lively lemon and lime flavors” – 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
