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.

Nice use of oak, hints of butterscotch but dulled fruit. Lighter bodied and there is a slight phenolic backbone.

Great go-to Sonoma SB. Nose is unexpected with notes of vanilla and citrus; no overt grassy aromas. Grapefruit and a mildly acidic zest dominate mouthfeel with a slightly rounded and creamy finish, perhaps due to the oak aging. Perfect summer wine!

nice, tropical ripe SB but still restrained and zippy.

the acidity is the star. leans citrus, nothing green here. the barrel is maybe too tempered to call it super interesting, but nothing about this bottle is off putting.
