While this Sauvignon Blanc is long on richness and concentration, it also displays the structure and elegance of a cool growing season. The nose is suffused with pineapple, lychee, pear, orange blossoms and thyme. The palate is all lemon, grapefruit, mango and blood orange.
Blend: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Sauvignon Gris, 3% Sauvignon Musque
"Light yellow. A pungent, strongly perfumed bouquet evokes grapefruit, quince, vanilla and fresh flowers. Offers an array of spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors, with herb and floral nuances adding complexity. Chewy and energetic, with powerful finishing cut, an echo of vanilla and very good length. This potent wine, made from 83% sauvignon blanc, 12% sauvignon gris and 3% sauvignon musque, would work extremely well with Thai or Vietnamese fish preparations."
International Wine Cellar
Ack. Had high expectations for this, which I got on sale, and was disappointed. We did not get the aroma and flavor profiles in the reviews; honestly, the aroma was overwhelmingly of tar. As in black top. Not the crisp Sauv Blanc profile outlined. I drink a lot of this varietal and didn't even finish a glass of this. Not recommended. (Did not pair with food, so maybe that changes it).

Classic Chalk Hill SB with way too much alcohol (14.5%!) and it tastes like it. But even with that, it is very good.

Big disappointment. Actually tastes like it has gone bad.
