100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine. Drink now through 2024.

Bright straw gold. Abundant nose of lime zest and lemongrass. Medium plus acidity leads the medium-bodied palate of citrus rind, leek, balsam, and bell pepper. Medium finish retains the brightness with a hint of green fig. 100% Sauvignon yields a brighter and tighter style of Bordeaux Blanc Sec that’s still got enough weight for classic fare like trout almandine or more contemporary options like lobster mac and cheese. I prefer that dollop of Semmillon, but this is well-made and potentially appealing to the New World SB crowd. Drink now through 2026.

Lovely 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Honeysuckle, white peach, gooseberry, hints of white grapefruit, and wet stone. Classy, complex, almost Sancerre-like but not your typical minerally Old World white.
