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!

Full bodied with a crisp mineral finish. Perfect for a warm summer evening apéritif

What a beautiful sav blanc. Some of the fruitiness of a Merry Edwards, but with way more mineral and a crisper finish. Great wine.
