Atalon 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

 

Does this winery even exist? If one drives up to it’s Calistoga address, you won’t see any signs or even any employees. The winery has been converted into a facility to entertain VIP guests of the Kendall-Jackson empire.  It seems all winemaking is now done at Cardinale Estate down the road.

How can a winery exist without really existing anymore? They keep a small tank of wine on the property to keep the winery bond from expiring. How cheeky!

If you are picking this up for under $14 –like we do in Philly– then this wine is worth picking up if you are a fan of Sauvignon Blanc. Varietally correct to a fault, this is grassier than most lawns. The grapefruit, a touch of sea salt, and a splash of fresh guava and your home free.
