My wife and I shared a bottle of this Sauvignon Blanc last evening. What a terrific wine!
External Reviews for J. Rickards Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley
Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Now, it may be that the slightly acrid and matchsticky start to this wine has to do with its recent bottling, but its pungent mix of wet grass and dandelion greens is all owing to its grape. Sad to say, it is more sweet and candied in taste than its nose might predict, and its distinctively varietal beginnings are simply not followed up in the mouth.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
