Two years after my initial review and this wine continues to impress. The wine is definitely evolving. More complex and depth. Definitely will last another 5 years.

I have to admit, I didn't want to like this wine but I do. Spice, plum and oak. All in balance and low alcohol. Started a little funky but opened up nicely and really showed well. Wish I had more.

At one time I would not have enjoyed this wine but my palate has definitely evolved. The nose had a lot of fruit - grapefruit, peach and apricot. Flavors had all of those with a smooth texture, with hints of lemon (a bit of lime?) and a refreshing tartness of it. This was served not quite as cool as I think it should have bee but it still showed very, very well. Was VERY surprised with this wine.

Lemon colored in the glass. Inviting nose of banana and honeydew. Nicely flavored with apricot, melon and some mineral. Crisp and clean. Nicely balanced. Short finish. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10

Very well made California sauvignon blanc made with a nod to Cloudy Bay, but possessing Napa Valley fruit so it is rounder and riper than the NZ variety. Aromas of pink grapefruit, lemon, and chalk give way to a palate of pink grapefruit, apple, and mineral. The mineral note is very distinctive, and makes this far better than your standard Napa SB. Also, this proves that you can have a rich, medium-bodied wine without reaching for an oaky, fume blanc style. Nicely done, and a definite rebuy.

I was hoping for more from this bottle when I bought it. It was recommended at my local wine store but found the grapefruit way too overwhelming. The acid was really all that was left after about 30 seconds. Simple in structure. If it were under $10. I might buy it again for drinking under 40 degrees, but will probably try something else next time I feel adventurous.

I was very wowed by this wine - it's so elegant that you could mistake it for a very high priced Burgundy. In fact, it's very fairly priced for such a lovely find. It starts out very floral reminding me of walks along the river where Magnolia and Locust grow. It continues on with hints of pineapple and even a bit of black licorice. As it trickles down your throat it sings of tropical fruit and well balanced acidity. Plain and simple - if you like rare white finds. Seek this out.

An intriguing soil character develops along with intense lime flavors as this wine's initial reduction blows off. It has warm accents of agave and corn silk. To pour with the cauliflower in a cast iron pot at Ubuntu in Napa." And, according to Wine Spectator: "Racy and pungent, with gooseberry, fresh herb and grass flavors and a searing acidity that keeps the lemon-lime flavors bright and fresh.

Our wine is supple with texture; it has finesse that is enhanced by generous sweet berry, toasted oak, a round middle and a licorice finish.

refined rich luscious style with aromas of nectarines, peach and ripe cantaloupe. On the palate the mouthwatering flavors of peaches and nectarines are completely filled out with a subtle mineral quality. This is a unique bottle of wine to be enjoyed now for it’s freshness and in the future as it develops in the bottle.

Some people think rosé is a sissy wine, not worthy of accompanying meals even as light as a salad much less a sultry dinner of filet mignon. I don’t agree. A fruity, crisp. dry – dry being the key word – rosé is a delight for the senses. From picnics on the beach, to backyard BBQs with grilled meats, many meals are ideal with a dry rosé. full of character, this Merlot from our Dollarhide vineyard was made with your and my food and pleasure in mind. The aroma of fresh strawberries leaps out of the glass at the beginning and are followed by a hint of a floral note. The palate again shows bright strawberry but then is followed by cherries and cream. This is a crisp, dry summer sipper.

A deliciously floral, yet delicate Muscat wine, this St. Supery Moscato had the intense perfumed aromas of ripe peaches and apricots enhanced by cantalope and lychees for a crisp and balanced wine. Serve chilled as an aperitif or with dessert.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Muscato is like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach, apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.
