Lovely honeysuckle, peach and melon on the nose. Great acidity on a creamy palate coating texture. Very nice. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 7/24/10

Round sweetness, floral, light acidic, big body. Peach, apricot. I guessed a Gewurztraminer - this doesn't have any of the Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. $40

A solid new world Sauvignon Blanc. Lacks the piercing acidity and grassy flavor of a NZ SB. The wine has an attractive nose, a light oak, citrus and slight tropical (pineapple/mango) on the palate.

The aroma is floral and mouthwatering, layered with ripe melon, peach and subtle mineral highlights. In the mouth, it is rich and seamlessly well balanced, kicking in a hint of grapefruit, cirrus and pear on the lingering finish.

Sophisticated and polished, this wine reflects its mature, low-yielding vineyard components. The aroma is bursting with lychee fruit, fig, guava and ripe pear.

Aromas of melon, grapefruit and flowers, complicated by minerals and toast. Supple and lightly saline, with an umami richness of texture to the ripe flavors of peach, pear and flowers. Mellow acidity accentuates the wine’s leesy opulence. Finishes with good persistence.

A smooth and silky white, showing spicy details of nutmeg and quince that are joined by pure, ripe honeydew melon and cantaloupe flavors. Pear, lemon zest and apricot notes are elegant, lithe and nicely juicy on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

Winemaker's Notes:

PinotFile: This wine is barrel fermented with lees stirring, giving it an uncommon richness and complexity on the palate. Moderate straw color and clear in the glass. Perfumed with lychee and floral notes, tasting of fresh melon, pear and pink grapefruit, and laced with bright acidity, this wine is highly versatile at the table. This beautifully crafted wine has none of the unpleasant grassiness found in many Sauvignon Blancs. My favorite California Sauvignon Blanc along with that produced by Soliste. (6/19/13)
