Winery Notes:

The bright, shimmering, green-gold hue of this Sauvignon Blanc is a visual overture to a striking personality. Its enticing aroma is highly perfumed with honeysuckle, citrus blossom, white rose and gardenia. Honeydew melon, nectarine, ripe Rainier cherry, tangerine, Kaffir lime and summer hay add complexity, along with hints of sweet oak and toasted hazelnut.

On the palate, vibrant acidity is finely balanced with a rich, creamy mouthfeel creating a unique textural experience — reminiscent of a refreshing blood orange sorbet. The finish is broad and lingers with sweet pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest.

The Tasting PanelLush and layered with notes of pineapple, peach, and citrus, this is always one of the definitive Sauvignons of California. Rich, creamy, and balanced, it shows abundant notes of vanilla before the long finish.

Wine EnthusiastA perennially popular and well-made wine, this vintage is no exception, shining in concentrated, layers of rich, bold flavor. A sweetness of peach and vanilla complement a more exotic element of rose petal and black licorice.

Wine SpectatorPeach cobbler, ripe melon and marmalade notes are elegant, supple and detailed in this white, with spice and black tea accents. A refreshing thread of acidity keeps the flavors fresh without interfering with the elegance. Drink now. 10,500 cases made.
