One of the best California Sauvignon Blancs I've tasted. Light golden color, gorgeous aromatics of stone fruits, flowers, and honeyed citrus, and very little of the grassy character that California Sauvignon Blancs usually display. Actually reminded me a lot of a superb Savennieres (a Chenin Blanc wine, not a Sauvignon Blanc at all) with its graceful feel married to intensity of flavor and mineral-tinged edges. Ripe, full, long, crisp, pure - just outstanding. Wish it were half the price ... - HK 2015-09-18
