Peach and other stone fruit along with citrus and light mineral on the nose. Some juicy bubblegum notes. It's bright and fresh on the palate with a great acid profile. Flavors of peach bubblegum. Light minerals. Very juicy and mouth watering and lingers well. Very nice and layered. 96 pts. 4/21/12

89 points. I have to say that I approached this wine with a degree of scepticism at first. I typically find Sauvignon Blancs from California to be the least impressive wines made with the varietal. They usually lack the depth, definition, and complexity that Sauvignon Blancs from France, New Zealand, Chile, and Australia can have. That said, I’m always willing to give a wine a fair shot, so I dove right in. I was pleasantly surprised by this wine’s aroma, and I think I could do a pretty good job of summing it up simply by calling it “yummy.” It’s got some nice sweet gooseberry tones mixed in with this really fresh lemonade aroma. I get a little grapefruit, some green bananas, and an intense but hard to define tropical floral note, combined with some pretty strong stone. The palate opens with delicate white peach, soft nectarine, and an almost creamy floral quality (live lavender infused custard.) There is a bit of agave syrup, sugar cane, and a spritz of citrus. There is also a delicate stony component and a strong tropical perfume on the finish. This wine is smooth and fairly rich, with a nice creaminess, balanced nicely with some crisp, and very lightly bitter (in a good way) minerality. The finish is nice, with a good mouthwatering acidity that makes you want another sip. Overall, I’m impressed with this wine. I think that it’s refined and well made, and although it may not be quite as interesting as the Sauvignon Blancs I mentioned from other countries, I think it performs very nicely for one from California. This wine may be a bit over priced, and I think that the fact that it’s from Napa has a lot to do with that (the so called appellation ”name premium,”) but not by too much. I could see paying in the mid 20′s for this, and I think that if you want to check out a well done Sauvignon Blanc from California, it’s worth trying.

Really really nice wine. Don't drink it too cold and you will enjoy the multiple layers of complexity.

A wonderful tropical fruit nose gives way to powerful, fresh apricot and mango flavors. The finisg is crisp and clean as a Spring afternoon.
