A delight! Wild honey, golden Apple, herbs d’provence, rich and luscious - lean at the same time, with enough acidity to support the intense flavors — 4 days ago

As someone who is often quick to dismiss Sauvignon Blanc, I’m very happy to report that Bow & Arrow is making one of the most memorable bottlings I’ve tasted anywhere. Showing it’s attributes the way a good showdog might, knowing what she has.
And that’d be lychee extract, sweet tangerine, coconut, pineapple, sweet sake, vanilla, dulce de ledge, and butterfinger. Extraordinarily deep and ripe and all in wonderful restraint. — 6 days ago
A medium bodied Bordeaux blend from Washington that has a nice balance of fruit, tannins and acidity, at an accessible price. Merlot is the dominant grape, but all four varietals are represented. Washington is underrated but delivers Napa Valley quality at a fraction of the price. — 3 days ago
Les vignes nobles de Sophie Bertin. Menetou Salon blanc. Sauvignon blanc 2018
Herbal nose with lemon and a bit of chalk. Very nice. The palate is well balanced, matter, a chalky touch too, a great acid frame, some grip on the sides and the end of the palate hits kind of wall, where the grip transforms into a slightly bitter, herbal touch which leads to a lemony finish. This is very good — 2 days ago
This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc From Sancerre. Showing citrus, green apples, minerals and spices.
Medium bodied with racing acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry on the palate with a nice finish.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with lobster on the grill.
Great nose and palate. Very tasty.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
92 points. — 5 days ago
Super sick serious Chenin. Nose of beeswax, almonds, superb minerality, hint of honey, so deep, concentrated and super deep with intense acidity and explosiveness. So pure and fresh. Clean. Lanolin. Superb texture. Juicy and so so clean. Long and lingering. Superb structure and length. Lingers forever. Salty finish. Huge wine. Massively structured and also a hint of lime. Sick. — 12 hours ago
The is uniquely a non-vintage Cuvée Amor. I have it on pretty good word that when Charles Hendricks (Winemaker for both Hope & Grace & his own Hendricks label) doesn’t make his Hendricks Cabernet, this is the wine that the Hendricks fruit goes into. @Paul T- Huntington Beach @Eric Shanks
