2021 O.G.C. Mercantile Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District

2021 O.G.C. Mercantile Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District is now at Costco. O.G.C. stands for the Oakville Grocery California. They have two stores; one in Oakville, where this wine was made, and the other in Healdsburg. A few years back, Jean-Charles Boisset purchased the two stores and rebranded the Oakville store back to its glory days. Now they make wine sourcing fruit from various vineyards in Napa Valley.

I believe the Mercantile Sauvignon Blanc is made only for Costco. Why? The Oakville Grocery online wine shop does not mention this wine. I called and spoke with a representative, and he also believes that the Mercantile is for Costco only. For now, Costco is selling the O.G.C. Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District for $12.99; the regular price is $18.99.

Stag Leap A.V.A. in Napa Valley is famous for Cabernet Sauvignon. There are two historic wineries in Stags Leap, Stags Leap Cellars and Stags Leap Winery. This wine region is at the southern end of Napa Valley and has much cooler temperatures than areas to the north. This climate is suitable for Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes

The 2021 O.G.C. Mercantile Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District is a beautifully-crafted white, dry and refreshing wine. It’s the very thing a Summer wine should be. It has tropical notes, crispness, and it drinks fresh and bright. It is more in the French character of a Sauvignon Blanc, balanced with many enjoyable flavors. It is not in the style of most New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines, with a ton of grapefruit and gooseberry upfront. We like the delicate character and softness on the palate of this wine.

I hoped to find a tech sheet on the wine but found nothing online. For sure, the wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel. There may be a little Semillon in the mix, which gives the wine softness on the palate and a richer taste.

The price point at $12.99 makes the 2021 O.G.C. Mercantile Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District a Best Buy wine. Jump on it and enjoy it in the outdoors. I like this S.B with a cheese plate, seafood dishes, and salads. 89 Points.

      I have seen it at San Mateo and Redwood City Costco stores. It appears they have ample supply.
