I'd say a very nice value, good acid and bright fruit. Lighter bodied style with sav blanc the predominant variety. Think very light fish dishes, freshwater over ocean (trout would work well!). Fruit would also pair well. But for $10 it's a steal. Might age well for 1 to 2 years. This would also be a very nice "lawn mowing wine", he mows, she drinks! I'm the "he". Enjoy and visit Livermore, CA for great wines!
Dry, refreshing, not fruity. Similar strength to a Vernaccia. Purchased July 2010. $14.99 BM
