High acid but very well balance with citrus and green apple, green pineapple, green plantains, green passion fruit. I would have thought that some new oak was used, but all neutral. I am not sure this winery gets the recognition it deserves.

Zesty grapefruit, grass and fresh green herbs. Full-bodied and fairly complex. 14.5 % alcohol had me concerned but this is showing excellent balance today, retaining lovely acid and freshness after 3 years in bottle. The quality of farming at the Rochioli vineyard is impeccable and results in good purity and balance. Very few California Sauvignon Blancs are this full-bodied and manage to show precise varietal character- this is one of them. Pairs well with a variety of salads and vegetable dishes, even some spicy Asian foods and of course anything with fresh green herbs.

Grass and citrus with a tiny bit of cat urine. Wish there was a little more acidity, but still really great on a pleasant Monday afternoon.

When you're having breakfast for dinner... Sauvignon Blanc is the choice. Grass. Limes. Grapefruit. Tart and tasty!

An interesting enjoyable wine from Sonoma County’s famed Russian River Valley. This straw colored aromatic Sauvignon Blanc offers a full-bodied complex mouth feel more often found in higher end Chardonnay. Crisp in taste, well balanced and beautifully structured with lasting legs of wet stone and white currants. A pleasant surprise while sipping by the fireplace watching the snow fall. Cheers 🇺🇸🇨🇦🍷
