Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild green and pear bouquet with a hint of ripe pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a mild pear and gentle green apple blend with a hint of minerality and dried apricot. The finish is dry and pleasant. I found this wine to be quite versatile and food friendly. It would pair well with chicken picatta. Enjoy -Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sourcing half of the grapes from our warmer Oso Vineyard, and the balance from cooler vineyards in the southern part of Napa Valley, combines bright natural acidity with fresh flavors of green apple, tart kiwi, pear and melon.
