(From 2013 Vintage) This Sauvignon Blanc presents with brilliant shades of pale yellow laced with youthful notes of green. Green lime and grapefruit aromas bounce from the glass, accompanied by vibrant citrus notes of lemon zest and a faint note of caper. Grapefruit and green lime couple with zippy citrus flavors on the palate. This is an opulent and vibrant wine that is full of life.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesStrongly oriented to lettuce-leaf herbaceousness and fairly full on the palate, this weighty, slightly viscous wine is long on Sauvignon Blanc character to be sure but comes up just a touch heavy in feel. Fans of its aggressive varietal style will find plenty to like here, but, while we appreciate its concentration and volume, we would opt for the value afforded by its not-so-expensive sibling below.
