2006 St Supery Virtu Napa Valley White Wine Meritage

My second St Supery sample thanks to Rick Bakas and the fine people of St Supery Winery was the 2006 Virtu White Wine Meritage. This wine is a blend of 52% Sauvignon Blanc and 48% Semillon.

In the glass I could smell the aroma of oak, melon and a slight hint of grapefruit. Fresh and crisp as well. Alright enough on the smell let's get to tasting.

Nice big citrus flavor and crisp. The combination of grapefruit/melon followed by the oak gives the wine excellent flavor. Juicy citrus finish leaves you wanting another glass.

I enjoyed this wine before dinner and with a dish of baked chicken in broth over pasta. Either way your friends deserve to be served this excellent wine.
