Score: N/A Tasting Notes: Our wine offers the classic varietal combination of tropical fruit and tangy citrus. Ripe guava, peach and apple are balanced by refreshing grapefruit, lemon-lime and grassy notes, along with a touch of vanilla.

The fruit is crisp and focused, with a dash of peach rounding out and softening the grapefruit-herbal body. The finish is focused and lingers.

Light and floral, with pretty apple and herb flavors that linger on the pleasantly balanced finish. Drink now.

Mostly Sauvignon Blanc, with 10% Sémillon, this graceful wine opens with some sharp, grassy and grapefruity scents, then softens up a bit, with a textural middle that hints at sage, melon, smoke and herb. Huge improvement over the 2006.

Zippy, herbal style offers a range of grassy, toasty notes around a crisp core of green apple flavor.

Bright and juicy, with herb-scented fig, pear and citrus flavors that echo nicely on the round finish.

Fresh and light, with a green herb overlay to the modest lime and pear fruit. Drink now.

A heavier style Sauvignon Blanc because of the 25% Semillon in the blend. Smoky grapefruit, almond and lime flavors abound. Super value!
