Added Jan 2, 2011 at 11:12pmNose has crisp apple, honeydew and pineapple. Slight hint of grass. Palate is the same as the nose with crisp bright acidity, with a smooth well balanced palate through finish. Beautiful integration and definitely a must-try for Austrian wines. Recommend as an alternative to unoaked Chardonnay to the ABC crowd.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 10:59pmI'll preface this with the fact that I am not a Sauvignon Blanc fan. The Nose is sharp citric grass which is overwhelmed by passion fruit and grapefruit. The palate is softer than the nose would make you think, but it maintains the Sauv Blanc acidity and the passion fruit stays the whole way through. Definitely one of the better Sauvignon Blancs that I've had which gets it past that "Neutral" rating and I rated it to a "3.5" relative to other Sauvignon Blancs, but not enough to change my view on the varietal.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 10:44pmNose has typical Chardonnary properties - butterscoth, apple, pear, almond. Palate is nutty with flavors of apple. Very smooth on the palate and finish. This is a crisp style and no overpowering oak behind it, but still soft and rounded the whole way through.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 10:37pmTried in the tasting room. Tasted two bottles - one that was opened at that time and one that was opened the day before. First day bottle had a very fruity nose and palate - plum and pomegranate. Some spice on the finish. Second day bottle was smokey with a nose of BBQ coal. The palate was overriped blackberry with some raspberry and still with the spicy finish.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 2:39pmDark and fruity. Well rounded, this wine is a perfect party wine, since it will pair well with lots of food and it isn't overpowering, so it won't turn off any non-Cab drinkers. At the print point, well worth the buy.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 11:30amTried this at their Yountville Tasting Room. Overall, thought it was average. Woody and spicey, but with no overall distinctiveness that made me want more. It was served after a very powerful Syrah, which I think took something off this tasting.

Added Jan 2, 2011 at 11:14amTried twice - once in 750mL and once in Magnum. Nose- coffee notes, smoked wood. Palate - Smooth full-bodied, raspberry and coffee. Finish - moderate. Definitely enjoyed more the first time, some possible question to the storage of the Magnum may have reduced the flavor and probably took this rating down a half-glass. Openly a fan on Pellegrini wine, I would have this again.
