    I thought this wine to be strong on alcohol, unpleasant to my nose and had an unlikeable aftertaste. I read after the fact that it is aged in oak, not my preference. Something about oak has never sat well with me.

    Grgich Hills Fume Blanc 2010
    Sold Out $32.99
    2012 vintage available for $29.99
    A very pleasant bouquet and nice balance. Nice hints of grapefruit on the tongue but without the strong citrus acidity. We enjoyed it without food at a nice cold temperature.

    Really beautiful! Great tiny bubbles that explode in your mouth. Makes a fantastic mimosa, is great in pasta as a substitute for white wine and is just plain great on its own. Love it, except for the price.

    Big bubbles and lacks that over-the-top wow. Not disappointing but I have had many others that exceed it.

    Pleasant. Pairs great with fresh fruit. We enjoyed with peaches and blueberry sorbet. Larger bubbles but overall delicious. 2nd bottle (& 3rd) update---Really nice. This is the perfect combo with orange juice. Alone it is too much but pair it with a sweet fruit and this one is beautiful. Fantastic Mimosa's with this one.

    Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2013
    Sold Out $19.99
    2014 vintage available for $18.99
    Nothing compared to the 2011 or even the 2012, but interesting nonetheless. I kid you not, bouquet is exactly Circus Peanuts, so if you hate those, probably skip this one. I myself love them so I greatly anticipated pleasure in the flavor...but sadly :( was let down. A bit watered down and weak compared to previous years production.

    Hermann J. Wiemer Dry Riesling 2011
    Sold Out $19.99
    Lots of other Dry Rieslings that truly hit the mark over this one. Nothing shines. Off balance for me.

    Nice. No complaints. Just not stellar. 2nd bottle update. Upgraded to 4 stars...Pleasant, more so than the 1st bottle. I recommend giving every wine a second chance. The wrong food pairing or even just the wrong mood can affect your perception.

    Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2011
    Sold Out $18.99
    2013 vintage available for $16.99
    More like 3 1/2 stars... if drank straight up...The bouquet is heavenly once aerated. First sip speaks heavy alcohol, a bit out of balance, it then follows with a nice warm linger that also hints at the higher alcohol content. Not a wine you want to drink solo. I balanced out the alcohol with a great lemon chicken and the acidity of the lemon made this wine shine. Definitely 4 stars if paired with the right food.
