Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from the Alexander Valley opens with a pleasant mild tropical bouquet featuring musk melon and papaya, along with hints of fresh cut grass and faint green pepper. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, clean and delicate. The flavor profile is a mild stony minerality and gentle white grapefruit blend with notes of minerality and lime zest. We also detected some hints of white pepper as well. The finish is dry and it drifts away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this food friendly Sauvignon Blanc with a bay scallop casserole. Enjoy - KWGTP
