External Reviews for Rancho Zabaco Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley Reserve
Very tart and lively, with intense lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit and green apple flavors. Would shine with food. Drink now.
The 2001 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve reveals notes of figs, flint, freshly mown grass, and melons. It is light-bodied and fruit-driven. This is an excellent value.
The pungent scent of lime keeps this wine cool and tight, even as the flavor is rich as nectarine jam. It has a deep sauvignon scent and flavor, with an edge of green that sharpens it for food. Chill this for bay scallops sautéed with leeks.
This smooth wine has good balance, and a fairly full mouthfeel. Even on the palate, it shows a bit of both ends of the Sauvignon Blanc spectrum - the crisp grassy, herb and grapefruit side and also fig, pear and melon as foundation.
No Bull! This is a crisp, juicy Sauvignon Blanc to sip while sitting on the deck, perhaps with Thai chicken salad or pasta primavera. If you have not tried a Sauvignon Blanc, now is the time, this is the wine.
