What a wacky wine. The crisp fruit is basically cut off by a left turn into a smoky finish. Unique stuff but doesnt have that refreshing bite of other CA SBlancs. Had the 2008
External Reviews for Elizabeth Spencer Sauvignon Blanc Mendocino
Certified Organic. Engagingly aromatic, offering fragrances of grapefruit, lemon rind, pear blossom, and gooseberry. Crisp acidity braces the palate and provides structure for flavors of starfruit, white peach and citrus, and the vineyard's hallmark hint of slate and fresh-cut grass provide intriguing counterpoint. The wine's body builds to a creamy fullness on the mid-palate beneath bright natural acid, and flavors remain vibrant and complex through the finish. - Winery
This alluring Sauvignon Blanc comes from the winemaking team of Elizabeth Pressler and Spencer Graham. Thirty-year-old vines and extended lees contact give it a rich mouthfeel, with grapefruit and white flower aromas bursting from the glass.
