Sauvignon Blanc

2015


“Light, clean and fresh on the nose, this bottling from a rather extremely sited vineyard on the western end of the appellation shows cut lawn, lemongrass, squeezed lime and wet concrete on the nose. The palate is zesty and sour at first, but a honeydew element warms it up nicely.”
91 Points: Excellent; Highly recommended

“Palest greenish gold in the glass, this wine smells of kiwi and green apple. In the mouth, kiwi and green apple flavors have a charming aromatic sweetness at the front of the palate and a searing tart citric acid zing at the end of the palate. Delicious and fantastically refreshing.” Between 9 and 9.5 out of 10 Points

“Fresh lime and lemon drop on the nose along with a dose of tangerine. You can just sense, from a single sniff, that textural qualities will inform the mouthfeel. A certain grassiness is evident on the palate, as well as a limeade/margarita sensibility with a touch of green bell pepper. Richly textured, it tickles the tongue with its complexities. Grassy, citrusy and spicy; what's not to like? Angular on the finish. A great match to vegetarian dishes, especially if the flavors are bold and heightened. This wine will meet that head-on.”

- Dennis Schaefer, Santa Barbara News-Press, August 2016

 

“The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is very pretty. The warm vintage has resulted in a slightly riper style than in the past. There is plenty of varietal character as well as mid-palate depth. Hints of dried pear, sage and flowers give the 2015 its distinctly savory personality.” 88 Points: Excellent.
