TURNBULL WINE CELLARS "Josephine" Sauvignon Blanc 2018

(Oakville, California) $47

Turnbull’s “Josephine” is one of a new exciting class of “Super Sauvignons” from the Napa Valley (see my blog in today’s WineSpeed), and the wine is absolutely delicious. With its lightning fast freshness, “Josephine” is pure and minerally. There’s not a whit of green here. But rather, a wonderfully rich citrus/melon flavor that bursts open like a peacock flashing its tail. Turnbull’s “Josephine” includes some of the beautifully aromatic clone known as sauvignon musqué blended in for complexity and nuance. Springtime in a glass. A must-have now. (13.1% abv)
