Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit and peach pit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of lime and nectarine. The finish is dry and its flavors show nice length. This very good Sauvignon Blanc will pair well with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant, wonderfully fresh aromas of pink grapefruit, melon and white peach introduce zesty flavors of Meyer lemon, lime, guava, gooseberry and juicy melon. Lively acidity accentuates the wine’s flavor intensity and animates its long, harmonious finish, which features succulent citrus and mineral tones. Accompany with seafood, poultry, vegetable and salad dishes.
