The "Gusto" wines represent the Southern Hemisphere portfolio from Davis Family Winery, most of whose wines, of course, come from Sonoma. These Gusto wines are made by Mr. Davis himself, not simply imported, and the care shows up in the quality of the wines. This Sauvignon Blanc is an unapologetic, in-your-face wine that opens with pungent grassy/herbal/citrus aromas but follows in the mouth with rich pink grapefruit and tropical fruits in a bright, crisp, refreshing style with a lot of personality. Great food wine. - HK 2009-12-10
