 Tasted by Life At Your Leisure on 12/8/2013 & rated 85 points: Very light straw color with mild floral notes and touches of peach, green apple, and smoke. Very simple, straightforward and linear. Drink now until 2018. (1565 views)
 Tasted by wabi47 on 8/11/2013 & rated 85 points: moderate concentration and length; serviceable citrus, quince and grass. Good summer afternoon party wine. (2456 views)
 Tasted by Sniktaw on 7/24/2013 & rated 90 points: Very nice dry Sav Blanc lovely citrus and interesting grassiness. We had with Tequila & Lime marinated Shrimp grilled with Asparagus and it worked wonderfully. (2424 views)
 Tasted by Jobu on 5/19/2013 & rated 88 points: Solid if unremarkable. Decent value. Pairs well with a variety of dishes. (1623 views)

 Tasted by Crystal on 4/27/2013 & rated 89 points: Pleasant suprose this is a bodies sauvignon. (1494 views)
 Tasted by Jonclark99 on 3/26/2013 & rated 88 points: I get melon and mineral. It is nice with a cream soup without meat. (1170 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 3/14/2013: (synthetic cork, merde!), served non-blind. Maybe the best showing yet, and more NZ than Sancerre. Nonetheless, the steely, chiseled, minerality played well against the dry, yet somewhat plump fruit. Sure, it's from the valley floor, but obviously it was picked at the right time. 13,5% abv, great with breaded chicken breasts with garlic, parm, capers, and, of course, hot sauce. Drink now.

 Tasted by wine-strategies on 3/3/2013: consistent tn's. The wife loved it, the guests loved it. Nearly medium bodied, with orchard and citrus aromas and flavors. It was under $15, so I loved it, too. 13,5% abv, drink thru 2014 (1179 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 2/26/2013: from 375ml, off the list at Fiamma. Light toward medium straw. Aromas of lemon-lime sherbet, cantaloupe, honeydew melon and riverbed. Modernly styled and good with or without food. Just enough lift and purity of fruit to get me to drink this again. A good value and my wife loves it, so there you go. 13,5% abv, drink thru 2014 (1175 views)
 Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 2/4/2013 & rated 85 points: Ripe melon fruit meets onion grass. Tangy acid keeps it interesting. Solid, but not very thought-provoking. (1100 views)
 Tasted by ey1294 on 1/15/2013 & rated 88 points: - Light gold color with fast forming legs and aromas of melon and honey. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of melon and lemon with a light body. Bright texture with a medium finish - Metallic finish. (1065 views)
 Tasted by TKS9 on 1/12/2013: Consistent with prior note/score, but with an odd effervescence this time that I don't recall being present in the last bottle. (1079 views)
 Tasted by jwkagel on 11/17/2012 & rated 92 points: Very pale white with a great nose. Nose reminds me of abraxis. Some tingle up front with hints of honey and stonefruit. The alcohol comes out a little on the finish. The tinglee hangs around a long time. (918 views)
 Tasted by pmccullough17 on 10/22/2012 & rated 82 points: PMcCullough: nice grassy nose. Very acidic - a bit sour. Although it is clean, the bite on the back side of the palate is unpleasant. (1727 views)
 Tasted by Ashwini on 10/7/2012 & rated 85 points: Ok... (1726 views)
 Tasted by NEwino on 10/1/2012 & rated 90 points: This bottle is always a hit in our house. It is the go to bottle because you always get that great summer crispness of apples and pears. I just love this wine in the summer!! (1803 views)

 Tasted by MillenialWineGuy on 8/6/2012 & rated 85 points: Bright and clean on the nose. Very typical SB flavors. Grass, melon etc.
A decent amount of effervescence on the palate which I'm sure was not intentional but I actually don't mind it. Makes it feel light and different. (2099 views)
 Tasted by TheCutter on 8/4/2012 & rated 85 points: Good basic white wine easy down the hatch (1766 views)
 Tasted by TKS9 on 8/3/2012 & rated 87 points: Solid but nothing special. Could use more acidity to provide structure. Still, refreshing served somewhat chilled on a hot day. (1863 views)
