Description2009 Capture Tradition Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma Valley, USA
Wine AdvocateCapture’s 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Tradition is a welcome introduction to this estate. Displaying a French-like style with fresh herbs, flinty grapefruit, good acidity and a crisp, medium-bodied personality, it should offer pleasant delicious drinking over the next year.
VinousPale color. Aromas of Meyer lemon, fresh sage and minerals, with a sweaty nuance that reminded me of Loire sauvignon. Dense and ripe, but with firm minerality accentuating the piercing quality of the grapefruit and lemon zest flavors. Finishes brisk and long, still a bit youthfully tight. Classy and energetic wine.
Wine EnthusiastA bone-dry, slightly green Sauvignon Blanc, with lemongrass and gooseberry flavors, boosted with vibrant acidity. Feels elegant and sleek, but won't appeal to everyone. The grapes for this unoaked wine came from Sonoma and Lake counties.
