Editorial Reviews for Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford
Clear and focused on the nose with a golden raspberry tone to the faintly herbal and slightly medicinal aromas of fennel, lemon pith and stone. This is very broad in the mouth with a very light, gauzy texture. The acidity is well integrated adding a bit of brightness to the core of soft, slightly creamy apple and green plum fruit flavors. A bit of minerality adds some detail to the modest finish. This is understated and quite elegant with a certain air of refinement to it. 88pts
