Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Essences of fresh white grapefruit and melon with hints of spearmint greet the senses upon tasting this crisply styled wine. The blending of Semillon and Viognier enhances the vivid floral nose while maintaining the crisp balance and overall grace of the wine.

This offers up a lovely nose of well-integrated hints of nettles, herbs, and earth adding complexity to the pineapple and grapefruit tones. Rich and slightly viscous in the mouth yet the acids offer great cut keeping everything in balance. The palate is full of grapefruit and orange toned fruit with a touch of mineral cut and sweet, floral inner mouth perfume. This has good length and comes off as a slightly structured, rigid style of Sauvignon Blanc at this youthful stage. 90pts

This is killer SB. Big and ripe citrus and stone fruit, bone-dry and very light.

Juicy peach, lime, mango and mouthwatering lemonade flavors are ripe and well-balanced, with the core of fruit flavors getting stronger on the finish. Drink now.

Very dry, crisp, tart and lemony. This is about as good as this style of Sauvignon Blanc gets in California. The addition of a small amount of Sémillon and Viognier enrichens but does not interfere with the varietal's refreshing personality.

When first poured, this wine's plushness carries a thyme and sage spiciness, a minerality that builds on the texture, lifting and rounding to match the flavor of monkfish roasted with green herbs. With air, the wine balances en pointe, its flavors focused and framed like halibut in parchment with lemon and artichokes. And the density and fullness continues to evolve, lasting with freshness for Cantonese steamed fish with ginger and scallions.

Tart lemon, grapefruit, green apple and melon flavors stay crisp, intense and lively through the finish. Food would soften the edges. Drink now.

Tangy lemon-lime flavors are focused and direct, with a terrific refreshing acidity and hints of spice and herbs to keep this light on its feet.
