James Suckling (JS) : 96 Points (2017)
This is a very tight, complex and concentrated sauvignon with flint, grilled-lemon and struck-match aromas, as well as passion-fruit pastry. The palate has a smooth textural build with pastry-like texture and flavors of peaches, lemons and mangoes that hold long. Drink now. Screw cap.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2017)
Struck flint and hints of woodsmoke appear on the nose of the 2017 Section 94, a Sauvignon Blanc fermented in barrel with indigenous yeasts. This is a tight, compact vintage for this bottling, with tightly coiled grapefruit flavors partially concealed by notions of fresh greens and crushed stone. It's crisp and medium-bodied, with a citrusy finish. It's a solid effort, but compared to other recent Section 94s, it leaves me wanting more.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2016)
Impressively deep, with whiffs of smoke, white pepper, honeycomb and orange blossom that melt into apricot, dried mango and lemon curd flavors. Matcha green tea and nutmeg details linger on the long, expressive finish, with a delicate thread of acidity weaving in and out, keeping the flavors fresh. (MW) (7/2019)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2016)
Bright, light yellow. Sexy leesy funkiness to the aromas of ripe peach, fresh herbs and stony minerality, plus a touch of lemon peel with air. Quite dry and tactile, with penetrating, distinctly saline mineral acidity currently keeping the wine's primary fruit flavors under wraps; still some undissolved CO2. A fascinating extract-rich Sauvignon, at once fine-grained, salty and very long. Strong minerality and lemony cut reminded me a bit of Burgundy. Extremely young wine with terrific inner-mouth tension. and a superb tactile, rising finish. Not at all about fruit in the early going. (ST) (5/2016)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2013)
From a couple of pioneers of the style, this barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc shows aggressive fumé-style aromas of smoky struck flint. Grilled melon and fig flavors take hold of the silky midpalate, followed by lingering grapefruit on the finish. True to its usual impressive standard.

With sauvignon blanc grapes of such quality, minimal winemaking means the finer aromatics and flavours are preserved. At the winery, the grapes were chilled, gently pressed, and the juice…
