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.

Vibrant, with focused green apple, fig, grass and melon flavors framed by piquant, lemony acidity. Drink now.
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.
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.
Organically farmed grapes that are free of any artificial fertilizers or synthetic chemicals. This wine has hints of lemon complemented by flavors of honeydew and lime zest.
This established Napa Valley producer's sauvignon blanc can be counted on to provide warm weather refreshment. Crisp and bracing, with plenty of citrus notes in a dry and light-bodied package. A great match with scallops - barbecued or otherwise.
A terrific effort from a winery that now seems to be taking its stylistic cues from Bordeaux rather than the mainstream Napa philosophy. This aspect is demonstrated not only in the red Bordeaux varietals that they're famous for, but also in the current Sauvignon Blanc. The 2004 could be a dead ringer for a white Bordeaux with perhaps slightly more weight. Terrific purity and focus in this wine, showing zesty grapefuit, spicy pear, figs and tart lime peel notes. Tones of freshly cut grass and minerals blend together into a crisp and lively finish.
Nicely herbal, with lemon and butter notes that are tangy through the finish.
