Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Napa was one of our top finishers in our recent big blind tasting. It opens with a faint grapefruit bouquet and green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty mild lemon with hints of faint grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This wine is very very food friendly and the panel suggested pairing it with grilled tuna. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: Lovely aromas of white peach, pink grapefruit, and hints of white flowers like jasmine rise from the glass. The citrus and stone fruit flavors are accompanied by a slight tropical note of pineapple. The wine has a round, pleasing mouthfeel and a bright lingering finish.

Organic status: not organic
