Sonoma Coast Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast Hummingbird Hill 2010

External Review:

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Unmistakable Sauvignon Blanc herbaceousness is met in the nose of this effort by a bit of candied, not-quite-defined fruit, but the wine surprises on the palate with deeper, riper, markedly richer flavors than promised. Fairly full-bodied, slightly viscous and yet buoyed by lots of enlivening acids, this one has Chardonnay weight and needs to be held for drinking with comparatively rich foods.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Sonoma Coast Vineyards produces handcrafted wines exclusively from the Sonoma Coast appellation - wines of exceptional quality and character that will be recognized as the highest representation of excellence. Focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a small production of cold climate Syrah, Sonoma Coast Vineyards makes wines that embody the qualities and character that have shown the Sonoma Coast appellation to be one of the great growing regions of the world for these varietals. Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding - but truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured. Wine writer Robert Parker identifies the Sonoma Coast appellation as "where world class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are being made that are every bit as complex and complete as the greatest wines of France." (Savor Wine Country Magazine, Fall 2002) Under the direction of winemaker Anthony Austin, Sonoma Coast Vineyards wines display elegance, harmony, and balance. The 2002 vintage represented Anthony's 32nd harvest. Having studied under and assisted famed winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, Anthony went on to become the founding winemaker at Firestone Vineyards. During his ten years at Firestone Vineyards, he helped to elevate the Santa Barbara region and Firestone Vineyards to new heights. Anthony's Austin Cellars wines won broad international acclaim and remain highly sought after collectibles. Anthony brings his vast knowledge and experience to Sonoma Coast Vineyards' mission of producing exceptional wines from the renowned Sonoma Coast appellation. By carefully selecting the vineyards and working closely with each grower, Anthony obtains ripe, balanced fruit from these climate-challenged vineyards. His love for his craft, and the character of the appellation, is reflected in every glass of wine he produces. Read less
