Wine Description

Crafted with insight and care on Mt. Veeder at our Estate in the 2021 vintage, Rudd Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc is a generous reflection of the conditions of the season. Winemaker Natalie Bath worked diligently to select six perfect picks of 100% organically grown grapes over a fourteen day harvest. After an early budbreak of the harvest, the combination of mild spring temperatures, increased summer heat, and Mother Nature’s grace resulted in meager yields of small but powerful berries that provided the essential elements of intensely focused wines.

On the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc pays tribute to the season with aromas of white flowers, green pear, and lightly toasted notes that fill the glass. As the wine evolves, the glass is graced further with freshly picked lime and lemongrass, opening up to bursts of crisp peach and juicy pineapple. The finishing acidity is thoughtful and precise, adding dimension to a grapefruit pith-like texture and a final salinity that begs for a seafood-centric meal with a North California sunset.

Although the 2021 vintage was small in quantity, the Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc rises to the special occasion with unmistakable quality. Natalie Bath carefully chose to combine both neutral oak and concrete aging for eight months to unlock a delicate and rounded drinkability. One glass of this gem and you’ll be sure that the 2021 vintage was one to be reckoned with.

  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.

  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.

Mount Veeder’s viticultural roots stretch back to the mid-19th Century. Although many vineyards flourished on this mountainous terrain by the dawn of the 20th Century, Prohibition halted viticultural activities. It wasn't until the 1960s, amidst Napa Valley's wine revival, that Mount Veeder saw resurgence. This unique region earned its American Viticultural Area (AVA) designation in 1990, an accolade that...
