Waterbrook Sauvignon Blanc Columbia Valley 2011
#29, Top 100 Best Buys 2012, Wine Enthusiast Magazine "A standout in this new vintage, Waterbrook's pure varietal bottling explodes into life with bright, spicy, pungent scents of recently mown lawn, herb, pine needle, citrus and melon. Fresh, clean, textural and persistent, it has a depth of flavor rarely found at this price...91" WE Best Buy 09/12
Wonderfully refreshing and fruit forward. Burst of tropical fruits with a main theme of bananas. Powerful palate and a lasting finish. Nice pair with Asian food and fish.
Disappointed because of the price tag. Aroma is of rubbing alcohol. Taste is not typical of sauvignon blancs. Banana, apple, oak, strange flavor profile for a sauv blanc. After a few sips it was drinkable. I'm stuck with a case of it too. Maybe some customers will enjoy it more.
Tastes of kerosene and tar. One sip and dumped. Not sure what these other people were tasting, but this was nasty.
External Reviews for Waterbrook Sauvignon Blanc Columbia Valley
A vibrant nose with lemon grass and key lime aromatics. Lively kiwi, gooseberry and tangerine notes are integrated with hints of sugar cane. Bright acidity balances lingering citrus on the finish.
