These Lake County Sauvignon Blancs can be really good values, and this one definitely is. With its juicy flavors of citrus, fig, white peach and vanilla, and bright, crisp acids, it’s a fine cocktail wine, and versatile with food.
There's a lovely aroma and flavor of figs in this delicate wine, along with notes of pineapples and sweet lemongrass. It's very dry, with crisp, uplifting acidity. A pleasant wine at a good price.
This winery does a good job with Petite Sirah and Cabernet, but Zin isn’t yet a strong point, although this wine shows promise. It’s bone dry and sharp in acids and tannins, with bitter coffee and black cherry flavors that will play well against rich meats and cheeses.
A nice, rich Syrah, if you like full-throttle fruit, and the price ain’t bad. Explodes with young, jammy cherry, blackberry, raspberry, tangerine and Fig Newton flavors, with a decadent edge of chocolate fudge.
This is a Zin to drink with BBQ ribs and not get all bent out of shape that it’s a little hot and rustic. It’s a solidly country wine, dry and earthy-fruity, with good tannins and acids to cut through greasy fats.
Lots to like in this dry, crisp Sauvignon Blanc. It shows ripe grapefruit, peach, lemongrass, peppery spice and gooseberry flavors, but those sensitive to aggressively pungent scents will be turned off.
