My first white! (Ok, in many, many years) I was prepared to be disgusted. Sort of reminds me of a sparkling wine I don't hate, sans sparkles. Light fruits, in fact, just light light light. I don't pick up on all the different fruits but maybe I'm just too used to red.

Delicate nose of peach, honeysuckle and gooseberry. Rich and fruity in the mouth, with flavors of quince, pear and melon. Very fruity for a sauvignon blanc, yet with a tart crispness on the finish.

Tropical fruit and pineapple on the nose and on the palate. Medium body with a little roundness in the mouth. Just a hint of oak it seems. Somewhat off-dry to sweet in character.

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Creamy and toasty oak first smells with a hint of sweet butter for added richness make a fine start that is followed with scents of sweet apples, ripe pears and minerals. The wine is full at entry, then firms up a bit in progression and provides just the right mix between its evident viscosity and its balancing snap of vital acids. A couple of years of bottle age will see it grow and round out further.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Here is a big, blustery, highly ripened wine that makes no pretenses to prettiness or polish, but for all of its swagger, it delivers plenty of real varietal fruit, and its mix of blackberries, toast and caramel will please those who like rich and wide-open Zins. It struggles to keep finishing heat at bay, and it is sufficiently tough to argue for age, but a couple of years in the cellar will help smooth off its edges without dampening its spirit.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Earthy, tropical varietal aromas, rich, fleshy, supple fruit flavors, lingering aftertaste. We have been going strong with this Sauvignon Blanc for well over a decade. Our customers love it!

Wine Tasting NotesZesty flavors and aromas of tropical fruit such as kiwi, gooseberry, pineapples and mangos with a hint of grassiness are complemented by creamy citrus notes. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that addes great complexity and depth.
