Wine Review: This pale yellow Sauvignon Blanc from Napa opens with a fragrant and inviting tangerine and mild grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, tangy and tart. The flavor profile is a mineraly tart grapefruit with notes of lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. Pair this wine with pan-fried large-mouth bass with butter. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2011 Wild Iris Sauvignon Blanc is freshly inviting, while beautifully complex. Notice its golden glint and enjoy Wild Iris’s extraordinary bouquet of juicy pears, delicate boxwood, ripe gooseberry and hints of citrus. Then experience Iris’s silky rich yet refreshing mouth feel and explore its beautiful complexity. lastly, relish the long, fruit filled finish coated lightly with dark honey, a hint of vanilla and a shadow of nutmeg. This makes Iris the perfect white for pool side relaxing or an elegant table. Enjoy!
