Wine Review: This pale yellow colored rocked the tasting panel and clearly won our recent blind tasting of Sauvignon Blancs. It opens with a very mild peach bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, very well balanced, and creamy. The flavor profile is a delicious mild Bartlett pear and gentle green melon blend. I also detected a hint of vanilla. The finish is dry, elegant, and refined. The panel suggested drinking this one on its own. However, it would also go well with rich foods like lobster bisque or lobster risotto. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine "struts its stuff" in a sophisticated and stylish fashion. The aroma is floral and mouthwatering, layered with ripe melon, peach and subtle mineral highlights. In the mouth, it is rich and seamlessly well balanced, kicking in a hint of grapefruit, citrus and pear on the lingering finish. Some good customers who live in Alaska sent Ken and me a shipment of giant snow crab legs. I came up with a recipe for Snow Crab Parfaits, using this gift, along with cucumbers from our garden. The creamy wasabi dressing shows the versatility of pairing Sauvignon Blanc with spicy dishes.
