Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of Kaffir lime, iris, passion fruit, tarragon, citrus, white pepper, framboise, toasted almond, and freesia. With a poignant mouth defined by good glycerol weight, flavors of lemon meringue, honeysuckle, brioche and guava flow over the palate with a finish reminiscent of desert wildflowers and dry land honey.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Vibrant, bursting with fresh mandarin orange juice and tropical whiffs of mango and passion fruit, but also plenty of grass and hay notes. There's a very refreshing acidity, and the flavors sing on the finish. Drink now through 2014.

CG 91
Connoisseurs' Guide

Deep and abundant ripe-melon fruit lies at the heart of this very well-balanced wine, but its complexing elements of fresh herbs, sweet grasses and deft oaky spice take it to another level as far as interest and serious achievement are concerned. Moderately full-bodied, supple and slightly fleshy in feel, it is an accessible Sauvignon of substance, and it will make first-rate drinking with meaty seafoods or herbed poultry.

Cliff Lede Vineyards, , California
Cliff Lede
Established in 2002, Cliff Lede Vineyards encompasses 60 acres in the famed Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Owner Cliff Lede, viticulturist David Abreu, winemaker Kale Anderson and consulting winemaker Philippe Melka have come together to form an unrivalled team, making the most of this remarkable property. Their state-of-the-art gravity-flow winery boasts a berry-by-berry sorting system and conical tanks commissioned using a design inspired by the tanks of Chateau Latour. One tank per vineyard block ensures each lot evolves at its own pace and acres of caves with single-layer barrel storage ensure access to each barrel at all times. The winery produces Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Their flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, is crafted from the steep hillside portion of the estate.

View More

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
