    Rudd Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc 2021, a testament to a remarkable vintage, is meticulously crafted by Winemaker Natalie Bath at the Estate on Mt. Veeder. This Sauvignon Blanc, born from 100% organically grown grapes, showcases the essence of the season, offering an exquisite tasting experience.

    In the glass, it reveals a bright, pale-yellow hue, hinting at the youthful vibrancy held within. The aromas unfold gracefully, with white flowers, green pear, and delicate toasty notes dancing on the nose. As the wine breathes, it exudes freshly picked lime and lemongrass, transitioning into a luscious midpalate bursting with notes of crisp peach and juicy pineapple. The acidity is a standout feature, striking and precise, gradually softening into a textured finish reminiscent of grapefruit pith, accented by touches of salinity.

    Despite the reduced yields of the 2021 vintage, the Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc encapsulates the season’s beauty, resonating with undeniable quality. Aged for eight months in a combination of neutral oak and concrete, this wine offers a balanced and rounded drinkability that lingers on the palate. It’s a gem that underscores the exceptional nature of the 2021 vintage.

    This Sauvignon Blanc is a harmonious blend of nature’s bounty, precise winemaking, and a distinctive terroir, making it a treasure for those fortunate enough to savor it. Best enjoyed along the coast, paired with fresh oysters, and under the embrace of a Northern California sunset.

    The 2021 Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc embodies the essence of the season, capturing the unique terroir of Mt. Veeder. It’s a testament to the skill and dedication of the winemaking team, producing a wine that showcases the best of what this remarkable vintage has to offer. Cheers to a wine that reflects the beauty of nature and the art of winemaking.

    20 reviews for Rudd Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc 2021

    1. Georgia Dilday

      Intensely mineral Sauvignon Blanc with notes of green apple, citrus, kiwi, pear, and hints of lemon, honey. Great wine.

    2. Clayton Roney

      This wine has a pale golden color with light honey, citrus, melon, and kiwi scents. It has a mineraly taste with intense lemon, melon, honey, and kiwi flavors framed with citrusy acid.

    3. Lonnie Pacheco

      Rich with notes of new oak, grass, caramel, and pineapple. Slightly oxidized.

    4. Rachel Lahr

      Well-balanced sauvignon blanc with refreshing fruit and bracing acidity. Remains enjoyable even after three days in the fridge.

    5. Jacque Outen

      Lacks fruit, disappointing. Could be temperature or poor quality.

    6. Gene Lockett

      Light-bodied with lemon and flint aromas. Bracing acidity and a nice expression of the wine. However, lacking in fruit and body.

    7. Albert Tsosie

      Aged Sauvignon Blanc with citrus, stone, and slate flavor. Interesting to try, but prefer them younger from Rudd and California.

    8. James Brown

      Great Cal SB.

    9. Charles Vanwagoner

      Pricey for quality, flat finish with unbalanced dryness. Lemon and mineral mid-palate. Just okay.

    10. Jesse Forbes

      Delightful blend of grass, bell peppers, sourness, minerals, lemons, and jalapenos. Yum.

    11. Pauline Davis

      Rudd Sauvignon Blanc – Aromas of white peach, lychee, passion fruit and kumquat. Flavors of nectarine, blood orange, passion fruit and a touch of almond. Mouthwatering finish of 25-30 seconds with passion fruit and almond notes.

    12. Michael Aycock

      Exceptionally well-made wine with a beautiful nose, mild citrus, melon, cedar, earth, and mineral flavors. Good texture, seamless structure, and a bright, lively, crisp finish. Perfect with raw oysters.

    13. Erin Reynolds

      Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. Limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, spices, herbs, grass, vegetables, white pepper. Medium-bodied, crisp, refreshing, dry with tangy finish. Good by itself and better with food. 91 points, $35.

    14. John Patterson

      Decent SB with brett on the nose, honeysuckle, smoke, and orange blossoms. Medium finish.

    15. Nancy Martin

      Himalayan Lunch at Chateau Davyd: Clean, fruity, and fresh. 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Sauvignon Gris, 2% Semillon. Not for extended ageing.

    16. George Oguin

      Exotic aromas and flavors of lychee, kumquat, lemon, pastry, marshmallow, and guava. Long tropical fruit finish.

    17. Douglas Richards

      Excellent house wine, improved with time.

    18. Robin Johnsen

      Delicious and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley with limes, citrus, green apples, spices, minerals, light grass, herbs, light gooseberry, and white pepper. Nicely balanced with lots of fruits to balance the acidity. Drinking very nicely now and will continue in the next few years. 92 points. $37.

    19. Gretchen Bertrand

      Great.

    20. Dennis Friesner

      Review: Judgement of Singapore’s “Other Varieties” is fresh and grassy with cream on the nose. It’s bright and acidic, with a hint of sweetness on the finish, but slightly bitter.
