    July 14, 2012 - Hit of bubbles on the tip of the tongue finishes creamy. Floral.

    August 12, 2011 - Tart citrus on the nose and palate. Acid was a little unbalanced for me though. Not a bad effort for Cali albarino though.

    February 27, 2011 - very nice wine, with some flowers and peach on the nose, nice acidity and fruit mid palate, but not the amazing minerality of the Rias Biaixis albarinos. This brand, Tangent, makes the best Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted, and I recommend this over the albarino. Nonetheless, a great American shot at this grape, which makes lovely wine. I had it with Sushi, and it worked really well.
