Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma County opens with a green melon bouquet with a hint of yellow pepper and Meyer lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a mild yellow pepper, grapefruit and minerality blend with notes of lime. The finish is dry, pleasant and it lingers for a bit. The Panel suggested pairing this very nice Sauvignon Blanc with grilled garlic shrimp or steamed cherrystones. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of grapefruit, white nectarine, dry lemon thyme, honeycrisp apples and a hint of lemon zest. A crisp, textural mouthfeel with bright acidity. The addition of Semillon gives a smooth texture, with a nice lingering finish. There is a slight flint element that comingles with stone fruit and dry herb.
