Considering that most California SB is not very good, this was a pleasant surprise. Nice guava and FLUFF on the palate without being overoaked. I had this with fried fish and it was a delight. Great fruit.

A surprisingly tasty Sauvignon Blanc. As someone who enjoys this grape, mostly from France or New Zealand, I found this to be a nice mixture between the two. Pourts a nice bright golden color. Aromas of citrus and oak. The lemon zest hits the palate first and lasts throughout. In the middle, there is some oak undertones that balance out citrus, mellowing it just a tad. Finishes with ample citrus flavors, melon and vanilla oak. This is a nice medium bodied wine with excellent acidity. Has a moderate lingering on the palate. A tad pricey for a Sauvignon Blanc ($25.60 club price), but certainly tasty.

Thought I was kind of "over" Sauvignon Blanc, but this was delicious! Had an older vintage I was convinced would be over the hill, but flavors meshed elegantly and finished well. Green apple with toasted sesame flavors, slightly buttery, but not over the top. Was fantastic with scallops.

Uncharacteristically smooth Sauv Blanc. Barrel aged Sur-Lees to get a smoothness in the finish. Lots of lemon citrus in the nose with good acid but silky smooth finish.

This sauvignon blanc presents itself with a golden color and an almost toasty flavor before opening to a stone fruit and citrus flavored wine. It presents a sweet palate along with grapefruit, and a late-opening aroma of herbaceousness. This is recommended for the sweet wine lover or a light wine with dessert.

Slight acidic attack, notes of tropical fruits and a long oaky finish.

The long, cool growing season was advantageous for the white varieties on the property. The flavors and aromatics are excellent and the wines come across as having a great deal of freshness. The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is abundant with aromas of melon, lemon verbena, toasted marshmallow and citrus zest with a medium-body and vibrant finish. - Winery

This is another white from Phelps that needs some more time in bottle. The aromas are a little sweet now but those will become integrated with time. That said, the nose belies the palate at this juncture because what hits your mouth immediately is the bright acidity. Then grapefruit enters at mid-palate with another dose of clean brightness. But there aren’t too many sharp edges here because the gestalt of the wine is roundness, from the time it spent in oak (nine months in French barrels, 15 percent of which was new). Hold onto it for a couple of years and the seemingly high price, will reward you in the end, over five or six years.The 2005 vintage was unusually late due to mild temperatures that averaged between 70-80 degrees. From August 1 to October 31, only 15 days exceeded 90 degrees, and even then it never got hotter than 98. Despite this, color and flavors developed early on, with good sugars, though acids took longer to settle into balance.The first grapes came in on September 11, exactly one month later than the previous year. Fermenting juice showed great color, balance and flavor, similar to the cool growing seasons of 1991, ‘94, ‘95 and ‘99.The listed alcohol is 13.9 percent.
