Fortress is establishing a formidable record for Sauvignon Blanc. The '06 is rich, elegant, and enormously drinkable. There's great delicacy to the mouthfeel, with stony, mineral flavors that add tang to the lime, Meyer lemon and smoky spice flavors that finish so dry and crisp. The Red Hills of Lake County is proving to be an extremely promising source of Bordeaux varieties, both red and white.

Fortress is piling up quite an impressive record for good Sauvignon Blanc at a fair price. Their 2008, which is unoaked, combines crisp acidity and extreme dryness with complex flavors of lemons, grapefruits and gooseberries. Sommeliers should scoop this one up.
