    September 4, 2019 - Ok, to be fair, not much white wines enjoyed at home. This wine is an exception. Beautiful color, without that overwhelming grapefruit flavor usually found in Sauvignon Blanc. Served slightly chilled on a summer afternoon, might change my mind on white wines.

    July 28, 2019 - Wow is this a very well balanced SB. Lemon rind and grapefruit aromatics lead to similar flavors on the palette. Great acidity, even greater minerality but not overwhelming the fruit which lingers in mouth for well over 30 seconds.

    April 2, 2019 - Consistent with prior bottles. Still drinking very well.

    February 11, 2019 - Goodness, what a great wine! This wine is rich, buttery, oaky, and tropical — rarely adjectives I ascribe to wines I enjoy. But those attributes are balanced by racy acidity and persistent minerality. It all works well together, though I wonder whether a few more years of aging will allow the flavors to meld together a little better.

    This tastes nothing like the Loire or New Zealand sauvignons I’ve tasted. Bordeaux, perhaps? I rarely get to taste white Bordeaux, so I can’t compare.
