Community Tasting Notes 20

    January 16, 2021 - This struck me as a bit quieter than most of the Napa SB/Sem blends, I've enjoyed in the past, but it still showed well. Seems to be in a good window, and I'm not too sure it will improve with more time. Lime pith, lemon, slight hint of grapefruit. A leafy character (like wet citrus leaves) was really pleasant on the finish. Paired very nicely with fish tacos.

    April 6, 2020 - Light, refreshing and a versatile wine. Notes of lemon grass, pears, green apples and limes. Nice citrus overtones.

    July 11, 2019 - Beautiful wine, with apricot, pear, tangerine. A lime splash in the finish with a small dose of oak. A steal at $33.

    June 30, 2019 - Beautiful expression. I might have had a hard time blind on this as I recall it was much more full bodied and less acidic than I assoc with Sauv Blanc.
