Merry Edwards’ Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is hard to find off-premise and for good reason – it’s one of the best Sauvignon Blancs in the USA!
On the nose, abundant aromas leap from the glass, with banana cream pie and a plethora of tropical notes leading the way: white pineapple, ripe passionfruit, mango and guava. The palate is round and open, with accents of ruby red grapefruit, honeysuckle and melon married with a burst of crisp, refreshing acidity.

This white offers a complex mix of lime sherbet, makrut lime leaf, lemon curd and orange blossom flavors that are fragrant and complex on a fleshy, succulent frame, with notes of nectarine and ripe Crenshaw melon. Harmonious, with a fresh thread of acidity on the finish.
Tasting Panel 95 Points
I don’t think there’s a Sauvignon Blanc out there with the complex array of aromatics and unique flavors offered up by this stellar super-Sauv. Scents of salted butterscotch, peach blossom, just-mowed grass and pineapple fill the air. Developed flavors of jasmine-soaked pears and honeyed tangerine are mesmerizing — and the acidity pulls it all together.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 92 Points
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens from youthful yeasty tones to fresh citrus and green tropical fruits. The medium-bodied palate is notable for the intensity of its spicy fruits and bright freshness, and it finishes with an anchoring touch of texture.
