Apple, grapefruit, pithy lemon, slate and hints of white peach. Electric acidity and good balance.

Pale yellow. Lovely nose with citrus, kiwi, green tree fruits, white stone fruits and a touch of white floral notes. Crisp and bright acidity (7/10) with a light plus body. Well balanced with lots of citrus, grapefruits, and some soft melon or tropical notes. Some wet gravel in the long finish too. Crazy how long this lasted, still drinking well on day four. Delicious. Drink till 2022.

Solid, and truly great for Cali SB. I always felt CA SB didn't have a sense of place...still kind of feel that way. This is great, but where would I place this? It's lost in the complete lack of identity, not by it's own fault.

If you aren't drinking this SB by now you should be. Balanced fruit and minerality without too much green grass makes this a beautiful lean wine for the summer ahead.

Very Cool concept, same grapes different AVA. The wine was good, classic Napa Sauv Blanc with a little more depth and character. Can't wait to try the Knights Valley Wines
