Excellent balance in this Sauvignon/Semillon blend from Kendall-Jackson. More Semillon than Sauvignon Blanc in the blend, though to me it tasted like a fairly classic Sauvignon. Flavors lean towards lemon rind, straw, honeydew melon, with a touch of peach. Crisp, pure feel in the mouth, easy going down. However, nothing about the wine strikes me as making it worth about twice the price of the lower-end K-J Sauvignon Blancs. - HK 2014-07-27
