Quince and honeysuckle notes add to the more typical grassy notes though this smells somewhat soapy and artificial. A little sweet on entry then bright acids float atop the somewhat sweet and rather subtle base of grapefruit and unripe strawberry tinged fruit. Turns a bit bitter and almost metallic on the back end before finishing on a harsh, bitter note. 75pts

78 points. Aromatically this is a light wine. I had considerable difficulty, even after some very vigorous spinning, getting much of anything out of it on the nose. There was a good sense of minerality to it, in fact it almost seemed more like a mineral water than a Sauvignon Blanc to me, with an almost mozzarella cheese component (kind of strange actually) with just a very faint tropical fruit tone. Thankfully the palate was a bit more interesting. It opens with a lightly sweet taste of peach, it shows a little bit of tangerine, some soft floral tones, and a bit of limestone. The acidity seemed barely existent and although it did have some nice ripeness and a good mineral edge, it just seemed uneventful. This isn’t a bad wine. There are no real character flaws and it makes an easy going, quaffable table wine but nothing more than that. You can find Sauvignon Blanc like this from all over California of equal quality or higher at this price or lower.

Passion fruit, guava and pineapple notes are juicy and friendly, with a pretty air of fresh-cut grass and sweet pea. Tightly focused and refreshing, with the flavors lingering on the long finish. Drink now.

Sauvignon Republic has produced three Sauvignon Blancs from three different regions (California, New Zealand and South Africa), each one displaying the characteristics of that region. The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc from the Russian River Valley is a perky, light to medium-bodied offering with lime and guava on the nose. As you sip, you experience pineapple and peach first, morphing into understated notes of grapefruit and lemon. There is enough acidity to carry the finish and to provide a perfect wine to pair with any food that could use a squirt of lemon.

Scents of green tea and shiso give an Asian cast to this sauvignon. The wine's cut-grass greenness is held in check, soft rather than piercing, its zesty spice lasting along with the spring-water clarity of the fruit. A clean sauvignon for pike quenelles.

Stimulatingly fresh and clean, this polished Sauvignon benefits from very high acidity that makes those tastebuds whistle. It shows fig, Tequila, grapefruit and nectarine flavors and a finish of white pepper. Notable for its dry, keen freshness.

Intense and concentrated, with vibrant Bartlett pear, citrus and grapefruit, enlivened by crisp acidity and finishing with a juicy aftertaste. Drink now.

Crisp and bright, with refreshing peach, apricot, tangerine and lemon flavors on a light body, with an intense, tangy finish. Drink now.

Attractive, flinty notes of honeyed grapefruit, spring flowers, and melons emerge from this lively, medium-bodied, fresh, stainless steel-aged 2007 Sauvignon Blanc. Drink it over the next year.
