This wine shows a beautiful salmon orange color, along with a nose of strawberries, an herbal quality and tangerine peel. The palate lays out red cherry flavors laced with citrus minerality and a razor-sharp acidity which really refreshes. It is bold and even brawny, in a way - unusual for a sparkling rosé but entirely welcome. — 10 days ago
nat-funk mineral railroad with floral perfume, then capiscum echo, then oddly fleeting cinnamon, then apricot sugar, a kind of fabulously flabby tight-weight high waisted below-the-belt boxer bottle of mixed chardonnays with a little pinot gris-skin blush, perhaps. — 6 days ago
Fresh juicy strawberries. Very very pale red with vibrant peachy orange rim. More close to a rose than a true red. Great for summer — 7 days ago

This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from Chalk Hill in Sonoma County. Fruit forward and easy drinking.
Spicy, tangy and interesting. Crisp and refreshing.
Nicely balanced and good by itself or with food. A good pool wine as well.
Will pair nicely with oysters. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
