A pretty and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc that calls for warm summer days and oysters or ceviche! Brilliant pale-straw color. Aromatics of lemon, goose berry and lychee nut are held together by a backbone of minerality. Crisp, clean, bright flavors of citrus, grass, goose berry and mineral. It is a lively wine that will keep you coming back for more.
"Dry and crisp with acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc, with 3% Semillon, was fermented in stainless steel but partially aged in neutral oak barrels. The palate shows complex flavors of citrus fruits, Asian pears, lychee, cashews, vanilla, minerals and white pepper, with a touch of honey. The grapes come from all around the valley, including the cooler Oak Knoll district as well as warmer St. Helena. A brilliant example of blending and easy to find, with 10,000 cases produced.

This wine tries to push through, but just can't. There is complexity there: a citrus, spice, straw, pepper blend with a tart, round finish, but it's nascent and thin.
