 Tasted by Weston3220 on 11/14/2013: Tropical passion fruit goodness (1118 views)
 Tasted by Chuck C on 11/14/2013 & rated 94 points: Extraordinary! I could just smell this wine and be happy. I'm not a big expert (obviously), but this is the best white wine I've ever had. The peach and apricots on the nose are truly amazing. Drinking it is almost a letdown; but it's still very good. (1150 views)
 Tasted by Eric Guido on 6/2/2013 & rated 93 points: The nose was beautiful, showing fresh citrus tinged green notes of herbs and field grasses, ripe stone fruit backed by a hint of undergrowth with an intense mineral core. On the palate it was elegant with silky textures, just the slightest touch of oak ushering in melon and citrus notes with a hint of herbs. The finish left me wanting more, as it's well integrated acidity made the mouth water to notes of ripe melon with a zest of orange. This is easily one of my favorite vintages and reaffirms my belief, that this may be the best Sauvignon Blanc coming out of Napa Valley. (1105 views)
 Tasted by jrkennedy37 on 5/12/2013: So bright, balanced and refreshing. Tons of citrus and tropical fruits, bordering on watermelon. Perfect for the Texas summers :) (594 views)
