92 POINTS: VINOUS - The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc (Happy Canyon) offers terrific richness to balance the tension of the year. Lemon confit, dried flowers, chamomile and apricot all meld together in a wonderfully inviting Sauvignon Blanc that captures all the magic of this long, cool growing season.
The wine is a blend of grapes from three top vineyard sources: Grassini (60%), Vogelzang (34%) and Grimm’s Bluff (6%), with a total of 9 separate and distinct blocks represented in the final blend. The site diversity provides complexity to the wine which was fermented and aged for 7 months in oak barrels (73%) and stainless steel (27%). Bright, floral and energetic with striking aromatic intensity and depth, making it immediately appealing, but with the ability to age on its impeccable balance.
