Ratings & Tasting Notes:

“(A) round, rich, intense sauvignon blanc that could easily pass for a legendary Bordeaux blanc such as Domaine de Chevalier. There is a strong note of lychee and pear, with hints of spice, and a creamy texture on the palate. It’s difficult to remember a better California sauvignon than this one.” Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online, April 2013

“Medium-light golden yellow; attractive, slightly grassy, grapefruit and ripe pear aroma with light toasty notes and hints of lychee, fig, and vanilla … herbal, supple, slightly grassy, white peach and pear flavors with bright acidity, a trace of creamy oak, and a silky mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended.” California Grapevine, July 2013

“An aromatic white, with toasty, smoky notes up front that give way to peach blossom and honeysuckle details, balancing the ripe peach and nectarine flavors. Features firm acidity, a smooth body and a very spicy finish.” MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, Aug. 31, 2013
