A blend of 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Semillon & 1% Muscat. Bright and crisp aromas of tropical and citrus fruits. On the palate flavors of peach and lime citrus with a floral character. Medium length ending with grapefruit citrus notes. Good value.

2017, more complex than I remembered and also expected. Nice mid palate.

Grassy nose, citrus, some slate. Saline. Bracing acidity with a med- body. Vegetal notes ramp up on the finish. Honeydew.

Somehow it’s a hard one for blind tasting. Not apparent pyrazine component while lots of tropical fruits. The acidity is fairly moderate. Kind of flabby.

Tasty stuff, crisp with tart melon and dried citrus flavors, a consistent top performer! #wine #sauvignonblanc #napavalley

Best value sauv blanc from napa on the market. Reserve is incredible but this entry level is really lovely for a Sunday night, both to cook with and drink!

Tropical with notes of cantaloupe, pineapple with a creamy core. A little oily with bright acid.

This one was getting a little geriatric, but that being said, Honig is still the Sav Blanc I measure all others up against. Green apple, grass, some mineral. Paired with an orange roughy po’ boy.
