    June 14, 2014 - Eric's Birthday at La Vigna: amazing nose. funky, blue cheese, currants, mid full of peach and sweet fruit, medium finish, fully dry and refreshing. good acidity. The nose is by far the best i have seen on a SB. very good wine and manages to stay refreshing and balanced.

    November 14, 2013 - 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.

    June 2, 2013 - 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.
