Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 | Light, Clean & Refreshing Perfection
Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is pale lemon color with clear, water-white rim. Effusive aromas of ripe lemon and citrus, with hints of passion fruit and a subtle note of lemongrass. While light and refreshing on the palate, with a crisp clean finish. Drink now-2020. From former Opus One Winemaker Tim Milos.
The Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is a fresh, crisp, no-oak expression of deliciousness. Expressing bright and light flavors of ripe summer peach, fresh honeydew, and flinty Meyer lemon. While balancing nicely with lovely aromas of white peach, and grapefruit zest.
The result speaks for itself. The Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is a light, refreshing, and versatile white wine: Most of all, a gorgeous example of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc untouched by oak. And showing pure fruit and herbal components as well as Tim Milos’s signature impeccable quality. Hence, this is a wine to take home by the case, and to show off.
From former Opus One winemaker known for Perfection
When 100-point winemakers hold their $20 white wines to the very same exacting standards as their $200+ masterpieces. As a result, you don’t blink on the chance to own some. Winemaker Tim Milos earned one of the greatest lines from Robert Parker for one of his Cabernet Sauvignons, which hit perfection. The Wine Advocate founder gushed: “If you want a quintessential example of what perfection is in my business, taste this wine! Absolutely remarkable in every sense.”
Tim’s experience at Opus One, Cliff Lede, and Hidden Ridge has honed a mastery that is evident in every project he touches. While the Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is an aromatic, citrusy, crisp, and awesome example of Napa Sauvignon Blanc that would be a great value at its release price of $20. But at our $14 price tag, it’s like a hush has come over the room. And only two sounds can be heard: the veritable pin-dropping, and the sighs of those who see the words: “sold out.” This offer will be history by the end of the day.
About Winemaker Tim Milos
Fifth-generation Bay Area native, Tim Milos has earned just about every accolade a winemaker can achieve. First of all, multiple placements on annual Top 100 lists; countless wines rated 95 points and above. In addition, a coveted 100-point perfect score from Robert Parker. And tasting the 2016 Lola Kay Sauvignon Blanc, it is clear that Tim puts the same effort into crafting that crisp white wine as he does into his high-scoring wines that fetch triple-digit prices.
Tim and his team tasted fruit from all over Napa Valley for the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc. Finally striking a perfect balance with grapes from two sources. One cool and foggy vineyard in Carneros. And a sun-drenched up-valley parcel that proprietor Peter Rubissow reveals only as a “meticulously farmed splendid private estate — that required an NDA.” Consequently, this has become the Lola Kay M.O. First, find impeccable fruit from top sources, swear to secrecy, and parlay it all into a wine whose price doesn’t even begin to hint at its quality.
