Sleeper Sauvignon Blanc Reserve Napa Valley 2016
We have a situation here, folks!!!
Returning for a brief 24-hour period once a year, this gorgeous, juicy, lip-smacking new masterpiece is upon us --- the now-legendary Sleeper RESERVE Sauv Blanc has arrived but super-limited in this KILLER vintage!!! You’ve been asking, we finally are ready to unleash it…won’t last long...
Savvy Last Bottle clients who've been around the block with us a few times will know this brand (it's ours, since the debut in 2005), but if you are new to it --- give us 43 seconds to explain why you NEED and WANT this gorgeous bottle of wine in your cellar, ASAP! Insanely good considering the pedigree here! It's a bit long but worth it, trust us! As you know by now, we are longtime Napa Valley locals. We grew up with, schooled with, delivered pizzas and newspapers and partied with winemakers, vineyard managers, winery GMs and dozens of now wine-industry people. Now and then one of them will call and offer us a bit of "extra" wine - which we bottle under our exclusive label Sleeper (def: an unexpected success). Often, as is the case today, the source of these wines (which are protected like nuclear launch codes under reams of non-disclosure documents) are very high-end wineries who sell the same wines for MUCH MUCH more!! That's the quick skinny. On to our proud new release today...
2016 is another BANNER vintage for Napa, and our source for this just killed it --- AGAIN (they always do, actually, man we wish we could tell ya...). Stylish, pure, refined, razor sharp and somehow feeling even a little creamy or lanolin-like in your mouth. Just a whisper of new French oak, which rounds it a bit and adds a bit of sexiness, but mostly this Sleeper is all about grapefruit, yuzu, a dash of lemongrass and pineapple, sweet lime - just lovely, fresh and bright as a new hand-blown Riedel Sommelier glass. Drink it with everything. Last year the ‘15 sold out in hours…!
