Review: 2018 Lucky Rock Sauvignon Blanc County Cuvee
Lucky Rock’s 2018 sauvignon blanc is a blend of fruit, 55% from Lake County, 45% from Napa County. The result is unfortunately dull, a surprisingly lifeless wine that feels a bit too muddy. What would otherwise be a fairly grassy wine just finds much of its freshness sucked out here, much like how a canister of old, ground spices eventually loses its oomph and flavor. What’s left behind comes across as simplistic and a bit dusty, the green apple notes slightly soured, the finish evoking dried citrus peel.
