I was in the mood for Sauvignon Blanc that had more to say for itself than “hi, I’m Sauvignon Blanc” to which I’d theoretically reply “do I LOOK like a Basic B? Huh? Whatcha gonna say about THAT Savvy B?” Kidding, I’d never do that but if I were the type to be so insulting this wine would not bear the brunt of my wrath because it is more than SB spiritually and literally (there’s 8% Sauvignon Gris in the mix). It is understated. Sort of hinting first at greens, then grapefruit and lemons. On the palate it is quite elegant, bringing in honeysuckle and zip. It does a graceful dance over your tongue, a petite allegro but slightly slowed down, not too fast too follow if you happen to be it’s dance partner.
If you like your SB to slap you around and make you say it’s name this may not be your jam, but if you want a little intrigue, this one’s for you. — 23 days ago
Good wine, really enjoyed it. Balanced and full bodied, but light enough to drink when hot outside. Not sweet or dry. Would have and buy again. — 20 hours ago

Getting deep red nose on it. Deep red color to it. On first sip, tobacco. Cherry and blackberries. I get hints of vanilla, and oak. Tannins feel balanced. It's quite a treat. Has so much complexity to it. Lingers in your mouth. Lots going on. Great on it's own. — a month ago
