Tangy, fresh Sauvignon Blanc from one of the classiest of California wineries. All their wines are harmonious, elegant, and balanced, and this is no exception. Spicy grapefruit is the dominant impression in the nose and flavors. Clean as a whistle and excellent with food. Only down side (and this is a matter of taste): this wine is more on the "grassy" side of the Sauvignon Blanc scale than the "melon/fig/fruit" side, and I tend to prefer the latter. - HK 2002-06-21
