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.

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
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 bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 3 hours ago
