Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant and appealing wet stone and Anjou pear bouquet with hints of melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and has a bit of viscosity probably from the dollop of Semillon. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Bosc pear with hints of vanilla oak, golden delicious apple, mild grapefruit and a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Sauvignon Blanc with broiled scallops or crab cakes. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The newest member to the Blackbird flock, the 2014 Dissonance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of pear, acacia flower and green apple on the nose. This wine has good length and bright acidity with flavors of green melon, nutmeg, honeydew and strawberry.
