    November 19, 2014 - PSUSteve says I am a tough grader and I'd have to agree. That said, this is one of the best California Sauvignon Blancs I have ever tasted. Pale gold with apple, peach, and mango notes. Very ripe and sweet. No green or grassy notes in sight.

    March 31, 2014 - This is still one of my favorite Sauvignon Blancs. Great acidity, nice mouthful. It's got just a touch of lime and some green apple and some more root like characteristics. Very refreshing on a warm afternoon in Hawaii. Recommend.

    September 18, 2013 - Winorama with a surprise (engagement)!; 9/15/2013-9/18/2013 (Napa Valley California): Really just a fantastic white wine - maybe my favorite domestic white ever. It was billed as a 'red wine drinker's white' and I see why. There's so many layers of flavor coming through. Nice and refreshing and just a touch of sweet and a balancing acidity through lime. The finish just keeps going and going and I'm afraid I wasn't up to capturing all of the flavors involved but there was a transition from the airy lime to a bit more meaty fruits and then on to an elegant end. 92-93
