Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mild green melon bouquet with a hint of green apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is Anjou pear with hints of grapefruit and a touch of pineapple and green apple. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fresh, crisp and highly aromatic, the warmer climate Alexander Valley fruit gives this wine ripe peach and pineapple character; while the ocean cooled Russian River Valley fruit offers zesty citrus notes of lemon and slightly herbaceous qualities. Together, the two valleys make a classic Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc that pairs wonderfully with mild, creamy cheeses, seafood and vegetable quiches.

Organic status: not organic
