lots of acidity. nothing special. my wife doesn't like the acidity on it, which reminds her of bad chablis or something. anyways, won't be getting it again but it is certainly not offensive.

Most of the fruit for this white comes from the Stags Leap district, which is known and loved for its concentrated, varietally correct Sauvignon Blanc. The wine shows pronounced gooseberry and melon flavors, with well-balanced acidity.

Wine Tasting NotesAn elegant wine of both power and finesse that reflects the terroir of the famed To Kalon Vineyard. Fragrant and floral with delicate aromas of orange flowers, this Reserve Fum Blanc is multi-layered and complex. An array of fresh, focused flavors blossom in the mouth: white peach, toasty oak and orange rind ending in an exceptionally long finish. Rich and zesty, the wine is mouthfilling yet light on the palate. In a word: delicious!

Leuchtendes Gelb mit zartgrünen Reflexen. Vielschichtiges Fruchtbouquet mit verführerischer Vanillesüsse, reife Grapefruit, Pfirsich und Holunderblüten. Cremiger Auftakt mit gut stützender Fruchtsäure und saftiger Gaumenfülle, komplexe Mitte, Agrumen, Goldmelisse, Stachelbeeren und leicht geröstete Mandeln, perfekte Balance bis ins intensive Finale.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine ReviewRated 908% Semillon. If nowhere near as ambitious or complex as the winery's Reserve bottling, this nicely composed and wonderfully well-balanced edition delivers lots of precise melon and fig fruit with sweet oak and deft touches of herbs in its service. Fleshy to start and firm at the finish, it hits the varietal mark smartly and will prove a versatile partner to a wide range of meaty fish and mild chicken dishes.Wine Tasting NotesThe wine opens with floral aromas of jasmine suffused with melon and pear and a touch of mineral. In the mouth, luscious melon and pear fruit flavors lead to a fresh, delicate finish enlivened with a hint of orange. Floral and mineral notes add complexity. Barrel-fermentation and gentle stirring during sur lie aging in French oak barrels impart subtle oak spice and a creamy texture, balanced by crisp acidity.

The enticing flavors of our 2005 Fume Blanc come from grapes grown in the heart of Napa Valley, with the majority harvested from the Wappo Hill and To Kalon estate vineyards.

Most of the fruit for this wine comes from the Stags Leap district, which produces concentrated and varietally true Sauvignon Blanc. Nice gooseberry and melon flavors, with well-balanced acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

This bottling remains true to that original style—a luscious barrel-aged wine that captures the crisp, vibrant character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The wine opens with floral aromas of orange blossom and jasmine merging with fresh citrus and a touch of mineral and toasted almond. Richly layered flavors of citrus and lychee fruit unfold on the palate. Thanks to barrel-fermentation and gentle stirring during sur lie aging in French oak, the wine is round and expressive, with a long, elegant finish.
