Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa opens with mild grapefruit bouquet with a hint of tangerine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild slightly tart grapefruit with notes of white pepper and minerality. I also detected a touch of tangerine and lime. The finish is dry and its flavors are very refreshing. This wine would pair very well with oysters on the half shell and sushi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc reflects all the positive attributes of a cool growing season. It's wonderfully fresh and aromatic, with bright scents of pink grapefruit, gooseberry, melon and green apple. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with rich, vibrant citrus (grapefruit and kiwi), honeydew melon, spice and mineral flavors balanced by excellent acidity and a long, refreshing, mineral/chalky finish reminiscent of a fine White Bordeaux. A superb aperitif wine, our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is also wonderfully versatile with food, especially salads and lighter seafood, poultry and pasta dishes. Enjoy it over the next 3-5 years
