Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Oakville opens with a grapefruit, apricot pit bouquet with a hint of cumin. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, very nicely balanced, soft and round for a Sauvignon Blanc. The flavor profile is a tasty mild yellow grapefruit and mineral blend with notes of apricot pit and lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with a delicate fish dish like Dover sole and tilapia. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is the ninth vintage of our Kelleher "Block 21" Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit was sourced from an organic vineyard just a mile north of us in the Oakville AVA. It is fresh and bright with aromas of ripe melon, pear, citrus, stone fruit and guava. Bright acidity and refreshing minerality make this irresistible now and it will also age well for the next 3-4 years.

Organic status: organic
