Wine Review: This green tinged pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Rodney Strong opens with a light-yellow grapefruit and lime zest bouquet with a hint of sea spray. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is slightly angular, bright, and zesty. The flavor profile is tart lime and stony minerality blend with notes mild yellow grapefruit and tonic water. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with fried clams. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bursting with generous ripe fruit and orange blossom aromatics, our fume-style Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc offers juicy flavors of kiwifruit, yellow peach, and passionfruit wrapped in bright refreshing acidity. A full and soft midpalate and notes of vanilla panna cotta are the outcome of aging sur lie in 400-liter French oak barrels. The wine finishes with subtle sweet almond and mineral complexity. Try this with smoked salmon, chicken picatta, or a lemon mascarpone pasta dish.
