Bright, very bright. Not blinding, but definitely bright enough to warrant the figurative mouth sunglasses. The first swig is almost aggressive in it's tang - very fruity and held together with some acidity (the partnership works well). Then it hangs around a little, showing off it's body, which is fairly stocky like a water polo player without being the least bit overweight. It climbs out of the mouth-pool rather quickly, as if it weighed but a feather, dripping a little trail of mineral taste as it heads for the locker room, leaving you wondering how such a robust body can still seem so light and how it can start out almost sweet and finish almost dry. And how bad this review is. (I have no idea what I'm talking about.) But it's a solid wine - really solid.

For California sauvignon blanc this is pretty decent and exhibits pineapple honey and vanilla notes in the nose. The wine has a round body from barrel aging; it is very pleasant with no grassiness.

Citrus bouquet. Bright, full body. Acidity and spritz dramatically decrease after swirling. Outstanding value.

Pours lemon in color. ON THE NOSE: peach and grapefruit and hint of grass. ON THE PALATE: peach grapefruit and sweet mango. Decent acid but the finish is a bit flabby. Not as crisp as I would love. Light body medium (-) finish

Fun, medium/round body with lots of vanilla on the nose. Balanced aromas of honeyed pineapples 🍍 and a mango peachy citrus flavor. This is good...don't get me wrong, but something is missing. It's just not that interesting

Ok. Not as crisp as expected. With some bitterness on the end.
