Pale color. Inviting bouquet on the nose. Hints of apple, peach, apricot, melon herbs and minerals, but a tad sour. Highly acidic. Light body. Just fair for me. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10

Light yellow. Intriguingly perfumed aromas of grapefruit, lemon thyme, licorice and yellow rose. Very fresh, offering palate-coating citrus and orchard fruit flavors, with ample flesh and chewy texture. Finishes with good precision and lingering smokiness. This is a superb value, with great complexity for the money.

Plump and forward, with tasty grapefruit and lemon verbena notes that stay fresh on the finish. Drink now.

Green-gold color. Smoky peach and yellow plum on the nose, with a subtle lemon note adding energy. Fleshy and a touch sweet, with deep orchard fruit and melon flavors and firmer orange and lemon pith qualities. Finishes with good breadth and lingering citrus character.

Metallic golden color. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Ripe citrus, brown spice. Clean ripe citrusy aromas show a smoky note that follows through well on the palate. Brown spices linger on the finish. Ripe, straightforward style.

A piercing grapefruit aroma, the hallmark of Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc, is strong here, and there's a certain stony peachiness and some passion fruit as well. There's also a touch of green pepper and asparagus at the flavor core, and then some vanilla at the end. If that sounds like a lots to ponder, it is - probably too much, given the wine.
