Wine Details





Wine Description

(2009 Vintage)

Subtle aromas ranging from pink grapefruit to elegant Meyer lemon and tangerine orange. The delicate scents of passion fruit, pear and gooseberry linger with the creamy texture of the wine.

92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar:

"Pale color. Aromas of Meyer lemon, fresh sage and minerals, with a sweaty nuance that reminded me of Loire sauvignon. Dense and ripe, but with firm minerality accentuating the piercing quality of the grapefruit and lemon zest flavors. Finishes brisk and long, still a bit youthfully tight. Classy and energetic wine." (May/June 2010)

91 Points, Wine Spectator:

"An elegant, restrained style, this still has plenty of ripe fruit flavors, with citrus, melon and apricot notes, but the silky texture, mineral details, perfumed highlights and acidity that weaves in and out provide an air of refinement. Drink now. 875 cases made. –MW" (8/31/2010)

86 Points, Wine Enthusiast:

"A bone-dry, slightly green Sauvignon Blanc, with lemongrass and gooseberry flavors, boosted with vibrant acidity. Feels elegant and sleek, but won’t appeal to everyone. The grapes for this unoaked wine came from Sonoma and Lake counties. S.H." (8/1/2010)

    (2014 Vintage) Focused and very long on the satin palate. Guava, grapefruit and white flowers. Loves air.
