Wine Review: KJ has done a terrific job with their “Vintners Reserve” level whites in recent vintages. This wine is no exception. As a matter of fact, we think this offering is a terrific wine and value. We recently conducted a mini blind tasting of Sauvignon Blanc’s and this wine tied for the top spot. It is pale yellow in color and opens with a ripe pear and tangerine like bouquet. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is nicely balanced with tasty pear and tangerine flavors. There is a hint of spice as well on the back palate. The finish is dry and subtle. This Sauvignon Blanc would do quite nicely on its own or certainly enhance a mild flavored meal like broiled scallops or trout almandine. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "Lime, melon and Anjou pears intermingle with sweet and tropical fruits such as fig and kiwi to create this delightfully refreshing wine. Hints of grapefruit highlight the mineral qualities of this wine’s suprisingly long finish." Randy Ullom, Winemaster
