Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from California opens with a mild gooseberry bouquet with a hint of yellow pepper. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused Anjou pear with hints of light lemon and touch of tangerine. The finish is dry and it fades away nicely. This very friendly Sauvignon Blanc will be a crowd pleaser. It would pair nicely with angel hair with clam sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc is all about the fruit spectrum from citrus flavors through the tropical. Look for notes of tangerine, peach, pear, melon, and pineapple all brought together in a focused manner. I like to think of this wine a poolside appropriate. Obviously oysters is a great call, but everybody says that! This wine will work great with flavorful foods such as Pad Thai as well as lighter fish dishes.
