Very drinkable white. Had it with some pasta, red sauce, and spicy chicken sausage. It went very well. Nothing impressive, but a very good wine for the price. Not really for heavy foods though.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes "The mostly stainless steel fermentation makes this a crisp, clean, refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine offers fresh aromas and flavors of lemongrass, apple and melon. We add Semillon, which contributes an appealing fig character and a beautiful soft, rich quality to the wine."- Bob Bertheau, Winemaker Vintage 2006 was a year of extremes in weather. A cooler than normal, wet spring was followed by a very long, hot summer. The weather was nearly ideal during the growing season. Summer fell into a consistent pattern of dry weather, warm days and cool nights. Harvest began early, with some white grapes being picked in late August. A cool spell in mid-September slowed things down and allowed more hang time for enhanced flavor development. Vineyards Sourced from our Horse Heaven Vineyard, as well as vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley. Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually. Sandy soils with low fertility and low water-holding capacity enable precise control of vine growth. Warm, sunny days and cool evenings create ideal conditions for aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes. A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasing the region's ability to ripen fruit. Winemaking Yeasts specifically designated for white Bordeaux varieties were used toinitiate the three-week fermentation and release varietal aromas. 80% stainless steel fermented to preserve Sauvignon Blanc's delicate fruit character. 20% barrel fermentation for five months in older French oak for added complexity. Technical data Alcohol....13.5% pH.... 3.22Total Acidity.... 0.60g/100mlBlend.... 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Semillon
