Went great with dinner - pork burger with / lime/ garlic and mint. Nice summer sipper. Great California SB- (Not New Zealand! ) Great food wine!

Classic grassiness with new world tropical notes. More aromatic than other SB's in the area. Stone fruits and grapefruit. Nice round mouthfeel. Has some new French oak notes (vanillin). Med acid on finish. Time to drink now if you have it.

2018 was a good year for Sonoma Valley and this wine testifies. Delicious with steak or chocolate (or brownies eaten out of the pan).

Thoughtful birthday gift from one of my favorite girls. Medlock Ames is always high on my list. Citrusy and crisp.
