Wine Review: This light yellow colored wine opens with a light lemon lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is an elegant green apple with some minerality mixed in. The finish is dry, slightly tingly, and lingers a bit. This wine would pair very nicely with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The second release of Cadaretta Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon (SBS) carries on the crisp, forward fruit style established by the inaugural vintage. The 2008 SBS shows citrus like aromas of tangerine and lime, with layers of pineapple, pear, and star fruit enhanced by a hint of white pepper and cut grass. It is dry, clean and crisp on the nose and palate, with a creamy, full-bodied texture. This balanced wine is a great match with food, especially fresh Northwest oysters and other seafood dishes.
