Straw colored in the glass with a pleasant nose. Crisp hints of apricot, pineapple, grapefruit and mineral. Zero finish. It does have a nice effervescent zing to it, but it's nothing I'd seek out again. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10

Welcome to the candy shop. This wine starts off like a Werther's Original creamy and caramel like. The finish is like a sour apple pop. You remember the kind that gets stuck on the roof of your mouth. Let the wine warm up a bit and you get nice hints of honeydew up front and crisp lime on the finish. For all of you Sauvignon Blanc fans who have relatives/sig others/friends who only drink sweet wines this is a great option for a wine that both you and they will enjoy. It's a deck smasher so drink it while the summer heat is here!

Lovely Sauvingon Blanc, great if you're getting a bit tired of really citrusy SB's this is more on the perfumed side.

very earthy and smooth, enjoyed the citrusy flavors. I have enjoyed their Fume Blanc for years and always look forward to the new release.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Compact young fruit with a dash of lees and hints of a steely, citrusy, piquant orange edge to the more dominant green appley aromatic character signals a fairly tight wine on the palate and that is exactly what one gets. It is fairly brisk in feel and slightly juicy in styling with a clean, balanced but somewhat attenuated finish. Try it with pan-grilled trout.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Ripe and fleshy, with plenty of richness to the floral, sweet pea, fig and melon flavors that fold into vanilla and cream tones. Drink now.

Crisp and fruity, with lots of intense apple, grapefruit and vanilla aromas and flavors. Finishes smooth, lively and flavorful. Drinkable now.

Smooth, fruity and citrusy, showing some nice orange and cream flavors and a touch of oak; keeps its flavors nicely balanced and elegant.


External Review

Pretty peach, melon, fig and citrus flavors are framed in distinct herb and earth tones here. The wine is quite assertive, with plenty of grassy character. It's a style that may not be for everyone, but is nonetheless appealing in its genre.

A junior version of the Stoney Creek bottling. It shares many of the same rich, fruity characteristics, but it's a shade less rich, and has a tarter, more angular texture. Still, virtually as good, and a few bucks cheaper.


External Review

The 1997 Fumé Blanc is a medium-bodied, graceful, citrus/melony-scented and flavored wine with good intensity, fine definition, and an abrupt finish. Drink it over the next year.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Home Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a wine with a story. A first-time-ever, vineyard-designate bottling, this wine comes from the first vineyard Don and Rhonda purchased over 30 years ago, when they first discovered Sonoma County wine country. Located in Alexander Valley and affectionately called the Home Ranch, this two-tiered, steep, west-facing vineyard sits atop the elevated valley floor and enjoys full sunshine. An elegant wine with rich aromas and flavors of black currant, blackberry pie and cherry cola, a full mid-palate, broad and round tannins, with a spicy, racy finish." -Winery
