2013 Keith M Webster Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley
Imagine your first wine created from your garage. Many winemakers across the country got their start this way and Keith M Webster Cellars is no exception. A trip to UC Davis and the wine production course, the move to California and presto a talented winemaker is born who produces balanced elegant wines with depth and character. Keith will tell you there is a journey in each glass which pleases the palate and senses.
The winemaker is meticulous when selecting the grapes from the vineyards knowing both the growers and the correct time to harvest. He tastes the fruit and examines it for perfection. Each vintage is only as good as the fruit from which it is derived. Exactly why I love small production handcrafted wines and Keith is producing some beautiful juice. Thanks to Cellar Angels for showcasing tonight's winemaker and allowing us non-Californians to purchase, discover and give back by donating to charity.
Spectacular nose full of ripe peach, fresh sliced apple and orange zest with hints of stone fruit. The citrus explodes from the glass and as the wine warms, a hint of fresh cut grass. I could swirl this wine all night but then what fun would that be.
The mouth is wonderful with the bright apple and peach fruit followed by a nice crisp tangerine. As the wine warms, a lemon zest spritz. Crisp and refreshing with a nice balance of acidity and fruit. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc Keith!
