2014 Niner Wine Estates Sauvignon Blanc – 90 Points

2014 Niner Wine Estates Sauvignon Blanc

The 2014 Niner Wine Estates Sauvignon Blanc

2014 Niner Wine Estates Sauvignon Blanc  90 Points – Costco $12.99

I purchased the 2014 Niner Wine Estates Sauvignon Blanc at the Costco store in South San Francisco near the Airport. I was very surprised to find a Niner Wine Estates at Costco. The winery produces only small-case amounts of wine for each of its varietals.  I’ve toured the Niner Estates winery in Paso Robles on several occasions. All their wines are excellent and some pricey. The Niner Estates winery is one of the leading wineries in sustainable practices. All of their buildings are LEED Certified. The winery recently became the first SIP Certified winery.

This Sauvignon Blanc is estate grown and is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon. I did not find it listed at the Niner online wine shop. I can only think that means the winery unloaded inventory to Costco to make room for the 2015 vintage. More about Sauvignon Blanc

More about the Niner Wine Estates 

This is one of the newer wineries in Paso Robles. It is very lavish and a sign of the future of Paso Robles wine country. Once a sleepy cowboy area, Paso Robles has now become a mecca of fine wine and food. We expect more wineries like the Niner winery to open in Paso Robles. Read more on Niner Wine Estates.  About the Paso Robles Wine Country.

The Back Label

A reader commented that we should include the back label on a wine review. I think that is an excellent idea. We shall try and do this from now on. There is much to learn from deciphering the back label of a bottle of wine.
