I've always enjoyed these wines. Never overly alcoholic (this is 12.1%!!!) so you can have a second or third glass. Food friendly. Very drinkable. Not going to be a blockbuster but is always consistently reliable for a great glass of juice.

Medium yellow with moderate intensity. Lots of unripe citrus and white stone fruits on the nose. Moderate acidity (6/10) with a little sharpness, but not overwhelming. Lime, grapefruit, and some mineral characteristics. Light bodied with a medium max finish. Overall not a bad bottle of Sauvignon Blanc for under $20, goes very well with spicy Chinese food. Drink now.

Not many American SB's pass the grade for me. This one does. Uniquely California, very nice wine

Acidic with citrus flavors. Perfect summer time patio wine when chilled properly. Young Sauvignon Blanc, not as dry as most.
