Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from the Russian River opens with a very fragrant mango bouquet with hints of ruby grapefruit and spearmint. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a slightly tart grapefruit with notes of lemon and minerality. I also detected hints of tangerine and lime in the background. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Another stunning harvest, and another stunning year for our Sauvignon Blanc! This beautifully complex wine exhibits notes of tropical passionfruit, guava, and ripe pineapple, with delicious nectarine, and an earthy-citrus note of lemongrass. These flavors are intensified by the juicy, clean body and wrapped up with a zesty and concise finish. Food pairing: grilled calamari.

Organic status: not organic
