Benziger 'casey's Block' Sauvignon Blanc Mendocino County 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A lovely, fresh nose that has a touch of ash and light rainwater minerality over notes of banana, lime, kiwi and watermelon rind with a sweet bay leaf top note. Round and voluptuous in the mouth yet the mouthwatering acids keep this bright and offer nice cut, supporting the rich white grapefruit and zesty lime tones. There is a nice chalky note that offers nice contrast to the fruit and leads to the bright, refreshing finish that ends with almost salty notes and a bright gooseberry tone. A very complete package. 93pts
