Hints of fine winter cherry recently pulled from the tree, top notes of onion and guacamole, contextual clues of the palpable anticipation of streaming the full Justin Bieber album, the saltiness of 2 teardrops from nearly missing the sunset but then pulling them back when you realize the lighting after sunset is perfection. Apple, lemon, cherry, and grapes (duh). Essence of winter Oreo.

The new vintage of this perennially excellent Washington SB does not disappoint, with crisp Granny Smith apple flavored and bright citric acidity. As always, an amazing value and fantastic food wine.

Gooseberry and grapefruit balanced with tropical fruits. Nice balance.

Not usually a cab blanc person. Got it as a gift and was pleasantly surprised. Thought it was great, a little touch of sweet, sour and dry... but not too of any. Thinking I’d love it even more in summer.

Juicy watery at the beginning, acidic and smooth, some tannins on the finish. Not too deep

Nose: tar, cat pee, lemons and hay. Not a great start. Surprisingly flabby for a Sauv Blanc - maybe I just really love high acidity, but this one seems to be really lacking. Still plenty of tar, earth and malnourished lemons. Almost feels like they oaked this wine, maybe they did. It's not for me.
