Pleasant and what you'd expect for a SB from Napa, and from a great producer. Leaves me wanting more though.

Bright, fresh, lively, and with just the right amount of weight from the Semillon and lees contact. Nicely done.

Pretty Classic in style, which fits Montelena. The Sauv Blanc program just keeps getting better.

Fruity and soft, this vintage the winery aged it in oak, softening the acidity. Very pleasant quaffer
