2018 CROCKER & STARR AVA NAPA VALLEY SAUVIGNON BLANC
Of all of the Sauvignon Blancs produced in California, some of the most sought after are those made by Pam Starr. Through her work at Spottswoode and her own label Crocker & Starr, she built her reputation as one of California’s top winemakers, with an emphasis on high quality Sauvignon Blanc. Her new AVA Napa Valley white blend of Sauvignon Blanc, (formerly named Bridesmaid,) is an entry-level version of Crocker & Starr’s pricier Sauvignon Blanc, and at $24, it’s absolutely one of the best we’ve tasted this year. The 2018 blend includes 6% Semillon, which adds a candied lemon element and contributes to a richer, more opulent texture.
The 2018 was founded around a collection of secret vineyards in St Helena, Rutherford and Calistoga, and spent 8 months in a combination of barrels, cement eggs and stainless tanks. On the palate the 2018 has copious energy and brilliant focus, with a light richness, superb acidity and lingering complexity. If you’re searching for a delicious palate refreshing white to share with your friends and family this summer, this is it.
