Joel Gott '04 Sauvignon Blanc

Joel Gott owns one of my favorite wineries in Napa. When I lived in San Francisco, I discovered that once a year, Joel releases a special Zin that everyone goes crazy for and it's pretty much snapped up and gone within a few weeks.

Being so impressed with the Zin (of which he has a few different varities), I was pretty easily convinced to try other wines he produces, including his Cab, which is rich, jammy and great with steak, lamb -- even a cheese plate.

Tonight, I cracked open a bottle of his '04 Sauvignon Blanc -- Three Ranches to go with parmesan-crusted tilapia, roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus that we made. The pairing was perfect. The light, grassy nose led to a slightly acidic, crisp start and a floral finish with a hint of tropical fruit, kiwi, melon and a little honey dew melon. It was a delight and a great bottle of white – in fact, Wine & Spirits magazine Gott's '02 one of the best Sauvignon Blancs around.

Joel Gott's wines are not readily available everywhere, but if you stumble upon any of them, I urge you grab a bottle -- or four. You'll be pleased you did.
