Wine Review: This light gold colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a grapefruit and green bell pepper bouquet with a hint of stone dust. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, smooth, and bright. The flavor profile is a ripe yellow grapefruit and honeydew melon blend with notes of crushed stone minerality and lemon verbena. The finish is dry, and its flavor and acidity linger and last for quite a while. I would pair this wine with chicken piccata. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This third vintage of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is lovely and bright, offering the variety’s classic citrus fruit characteristics with notes of Meyer lemon and white blossoms. A lean backbone of racy acidity supported by a steely minerality adds to the wine’s crispness and complexity. On the palate, stone fruit notes of white peach, young plum, grapefruit, and zesty lime peel are interwoven with hints of white jasmine and elderflower, as well as spicier ginger and white pepper notes, adding layers and depth to the round, soft texture, leading to a lengthy mouthwatering finish.
