Davis Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Brancott Valley Gusto 2007

Member Review by WineborkDotCom:

The "Gusto" wines represent the Southern Hemisphere portfolio from Davis Family Winery, most of whose wines, of course, come from Sonoma. These Gusto wines are made by Mr. Davis himself, not simply imported, and the care shows up in the quality of the wines. This Sauvignon Blanc is an unapologetic, in-your-face wine that opens with pungent grassy/herbal/citrus aromas but follows in the mouth with rich pink grapefruit and tropical fruits in a bright, crisp, refreshing style with a lot of personality. Great food wine.

Wine Tasting NotesA harmony between the tropical notes and the fresh herbs, the bright, crisp acidity and the rich mouthcoating texture that leaves the flavors hanging on your palate. A unique, exciting expression that can be achieved no other way and from no other place.
