Winemaker Notes

The 2020 Kenzo Estate Asatsuyu Sauvignon Blanc is a pale straw yellow color. On the nose, agave, honeydew melon, peach, crushed roses, and granite. The palate shows layered and rich citrus, and a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This is the producer's flagship white, made by Heidi Barrett with 4% Sémillon and aged in both oak and stainless steel. Vibrant and varietal, it shows a textured layering of anise, cotton candy and almond liqueur, with bright bursts of succulent melon and white peach. Structured and complex, it is sophisticated and substantial.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Vibrant and intense, yet also elegant and refined, showing an aromatic collection of lemon curd, ripe melon, fresh ginger, vetiver and verbena on a succulent frame.
JS 93
James Suckling
Sliced apples, pears, peaches, lemons, fennel seeds and stones on the nose. Medium-bodied with crisp acidity and balanced, elegant and supple palate.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 96% Sauvignon Blanc and 4% Semillon, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Asatsuyu bursts with vibrant lemon curd, fresh grapefruit and white peach scents plus hints of dill seed, chopped herbs and lime blossoms. Medium-bodied, intense and delicately styled, the palate delivers a restrained, quiet intensity and long, zesty finish.

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. White wines from Napa Valley are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific wine characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth red wines with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Napa Valley wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
