Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Kendall Jackson displays green apple, pear, pineapple and banana aromas on the nose. It is refreshingly crisp, pleasantly acidic with soft notes of lychee and lime that are tempered by a hint of minerality. It has a long and lingering finish for Sauvignon Blanc. We would pair it with swordfish skewers and grilled asparagus or with an asparagus or fiddlehead risotto. We really enjoyed this wine. - Karen and Stu

Winemaker Notes: Luscious honeysuckle, ripe pear and fresh lemongrass intertwine in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of fresh tropical grapefruit complement the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine.

Organic status: not organic
