    April 2, 2019 - American sauvignon blanc doesn't get any better than this!
    Every favorable quality of this grape is here - complexity beyond all others.
    Serving this to guests might cause them to think all American SB's are made as well.
    The longest finish of any previous vintage and a dynamite companion to ,
    many foods.
    Bravo!

    March 25, 2019 - Fresh lemon, guava, ginger, brioche bread aromas. There is an amazing purity of lemon lime fruit on the palate while backed by lemongrass, zest, sweetcream, apricot, minerals, and a balanced, refreshing acidity that jumps out on the finish. First class Sauvignon Blanc.

    February 28, 2019 - I felt it appropriate to taste and post on this tonight.

    Today I read that she has sold the winery.

    To Merry Edwards: Congratulations to you and your husband.

    Having had many of her wines and also my wife meeting her in 2018 at CBCC made me feel that I was as close to the royalty in the wine industry as one could get. I wish I could have met her.

    Good luck in you in your next chapter Merry, you have left the industry better than you found it. This is the highest achievement in wine making.

    Now for the wine. It is still just so fresh with white fruit, flowers and great presence. Bright acidity which quickly evolves in mouth because of the presence of cream likely by way of some wood. The wine is not intended to be aged but I believe it will improve over the next 1-2 years.

    February 2, 2019 - candied ginger, guava and coconut shavings make for an interesting experience on the nose, a rich style of sb that showcases tropical fruit flavors, along with lime zest, nectarine and lemon hints, very plush, shows some weight, remains balanced with a long, refreshing finish
