Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2021

$26 Medium nose. Notes of pear, green apple, lemongrass, lemon rind, spice and vanilla on the nose. Light body. Low alcohol. Low acid. Medium tannins. Dry. There are notes of pear, green apple and grass on the palate. This is a delicious, refreshing white that's easy to drink and well balanced. There are subtle notes of oak that increase the complexity. This is a great example of SB done well. Definitely drink again! — 2 years ago

Mr. K The Straw Man Brander Vineyard Sémillon 2006

While fairly developed this showed a very complex and unique nose.
I don’t think it is for everyone but hit high with me.
