Definitely needed to breath for a bit before enjoying. Dark fruits and minerals on the nose. Meaty and chewy so this one is for me. — 9 months ago
garnet red, crushed/underripe raspberry and strawberry, cherry and some herbal element emerge from the glass. In the mouth is medium weight with high acidity and tannins. Good finish. A good, not stellar, BdM. — 6 days ago
What a color on this. Like a deep Alaskan Coho Salmon. Gorgeous. This is sick. Just sick. What a nose. What first strikes you is the vividness of the fruit. The clarity. The depth. Gorgeous and so voluminous. There is also some brioche and gorgeous toastiness. Amazing. Hints of blood orange, ripe raspberry, gorgeous spice and a feeling of a German Christmas Market. Stunning. Palate is elegant above all and so pure. Fresh, fresh, fresh but also yeasty, long and texturally stunning. Sneaky persistence. More of that Xmas spice comes across on the palate and the sensation of a building, ever expansive finish. There is a spice cake element that echoes forever on the finish. A wispy, elegant, intensely restrained bottle of German bubbles. Terrific. — 2 days ago

This is my fourth bottle that I purchased through Wine.com..5 total all rated above 90 by WS. Total for order $100
Oops! This came in a bit over $20 previously stated at $23..my bad!
It has been awhile since I have had a NZ Sauvignon Blanc! Has anyone else noticed as you get older you have to monitor certain foods before having a highly acidic wine (acid reflux)!😩
This SB is great...I would say presenting with less acidity comparably to others
The color is clear with a tinge of yellow. What sets this apart is a fuller body with tropical fruit along with grapefruit and lemon..less of a gooseberry element and a pleasant long finish!
Very enjoyable! — 19 hours ago
Clear, dark ruby purple. Shy nose of dark black cherry and other dark berries. Medium-bodied palate gives dark berries, black tea, light balsam, and a slight mineral element. Fine, medium plus tannins from entry to finish and bright, medium plus acidity make this a winner with a wide variety of foods. Salmon and roasted chicken were my first, and it performed stunningly. Approaches Burgundy in style and depth, but a real value at $15. Drink now through 2022. — 10 days ago
Fleshy with cherries, tar, and a certain iron element. Open and inviting. It doesn't hold back. — 18 days ago
Beautiful nose of dark chocolate and cherry. Pretty floral rose element. The tannin structure is still present with nice acidity and a good overall mouth feel. Slight chalkiness still with some oak, wet dirt, dark cherry, and that bitter chocolate coming through again. The chocolate wasn’t expected at all. You can taste the density and body in this wine. It’s quite nice. I’d like another. — 9 days ago
