(2007 Vintage) The 2007 Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc offers just the right balance between bright, crisp varietal character and a gentle touch of barrel influence from the winemaker’s hand. The wine has an open, effusive nose of grapefruit zest and passion fruit, with an orange blossom floral background. Flavors echo the bright aromas and include a soft hint of vanilla and dried herb from barrel fermentation in once-used French oak. Crisp, vibrant acidity supports this mediumbodied Sauvignon Blanc and leads to a long, juicy finish.
Buy more; better than menage a trios or casillero del Diablo carmenere.
great drinkable Cab. Good fruit/tanin balance.
deep purple, berry and oaky
full bodied but smooth
