The 2017 Patel Sauvignon Blanc is a gorgeous, distinctive white built on textural breadth and volume. Aging on the lees in 100% light-toast Ermitage barrels lends lovely shades of nuance to the fruit, which primarily comes from the McGah vineyard in Rutherford. Zesty lemon peel combines with savory sage, mint, tomato leaf and a hint of well-integrated new oak in this super-expressive, inviting Sauvignon Blanc from Raj Patel.
