Review: 2016 Flint & Steel Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Flint & Steel is a sublabel of Graton-based Purple Wine Company, with an unusual claim to fame: It makes only one wine, a 100% sauvignon blanc sourced from Napa Valley. It’s a traditional offering from this region — heavy with pineapple and lemon notes, but rounded out with some almond character that gives body to the palate. At barely 10 bucks a bottle, one does not exactly expect complexity, but F&S fights against simplicity and ends up on a moderately bracing acidic — and palate-cleansing — note.
