I like a fresh & fruity Sauv Blanc just as much as the next guy. That’s why I like the Gibbs Sauvignon Blanc so much. I feel like I get my daily RDA of fruit with a couple of glasses! Smell and taste nectarines, grapefruit, Meyer lemon, pineapple and green apple. In classic Sauvignon Blanc fashion, also taste lemongrass and coriander (but no grass). A fun drink, and for a quality Napa Valley wine, a heck of a bargain.
“Centa Vineyard,” owned and farmed by Gibbs Family, is on Lodi Lane north of St Helena (where the sand passes through in Napa Valley’s hourglass shape). The family started buying Napa land in the 1950s and planted vineyards through the 1970s, which explains why they can sell their delicious wines at such great value prices. Try their wines at Feast It Forward in Napa’s Oxbow District.
