Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Bright pale straw in color. Aromatics of peaches, nectarines, melons and grapefruit, with hints of lemongrass, mint, kiwi and slate. On the palate the wine is pleasingly full with ripe, crisp, fruit and balanced acidity.

Not bad..Had it at Sterling vineyards. Ordered a case. My friends who like white actually love it...Not for me, I found it a little on the sweet side with tangy aftertaste, reminded me of Champagne..bit bubbly...Not bad!

Was extremely disappointed. This has a very light melon flavor with a lemony citrus after burn -- wasn't great.

Copious melon aromas are followed by a medium-bodied, fruit-driven, floral-styled Sauvignon. As the wine sat in the glass, a hint of fig also appeared. Drink this tasty, elegant, cleanly made 2001 over the next 12-16 months.

Nicely herbal, with lemon and butter notes that are tangy through the finish.

Vibrant acidity is followed by tangy grapefruit and lemon notes. The moderate body rounds it out, while the medium finish is fresh and herb-tinged. Drink now.

Drier than most Sauvignon Blancs and not particularly fruity, but flavorful nevertheless, this wine boasts an impressive array of herb, onion and mineral notes with an underlying balance and ripeness. Match it with onion tarts or other savory light entrées for a taste delight.

The attractive 1997 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits an aromatic personality (figs, melons, and citrus), medium body, and a crisp, mineral-like character. This dry, refreshing, light to medium-bodied Sauvignon should be drunk over the next year.

This very pale wine packs plenty of flavor. It's filled with peach, fig, citrus, spearmint and smoky-vanilla flavors that are slightly off-dry, but the acidity is crisp and clean. Very pleasant, and versatile.

Decent and crisp, with watered-down citrus flavors. Finishes a little sweet.
