I'm sure Ferrari-Carano makes oodles of this wine, but the 2014 came across as a serious Sauvignon Blanc with extra weight and flavor interest. Nice feeling of richness in the mouth, with citrus and tropical fruits on top of an attractive varietal grassy bite in the background. Good acid balance keeps it fresh and clean. Nicely balanced and a great food wine. An extremely pleasant surprise in this price range. - HK 2016-08-31
