There's much at play here. This has a hazelnut edge on the nose with flinty, restrained and dialled back citrusy fruit presence. Minerally and stony with dried flowers too. A clever wine. The palate has a level of weight and texture more associated with Chablis. Very long, piercing, focused and glossy tight-wrapped fruit here. Excellent. Drink now.
A significant step up over the base Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Sect. 94 reminds me of a top-flight Bordeaux Blanc. White currants, citrus, white flowers, minerality and earthy mushroom-like nuances all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, concentrated and beautifully textured Sauvignon Blanc. Aged 18 months in oak with regular lees stirring, drink this rich, balanced, terrific white over the coming 4-5 years.
A barrel-fermented, no-holds-barred style of Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Section 94 delivers honeyed peaches, lemon tart and pink grapefruit on the nose with hints of struck match (sulfides), lightly browned toast and yeast extract. The palate is wonderfully intense with a gorgeous, creamy texture and tons of flavor layers, finishing long. Wow--this vintage is firing on all cylinders and should age beautifully over the next 5-7+ years. (LPB)
