Showing lovely, delicate orange and citron flavors, this Sauvignon Blanc is clean and zesty in acidity. It’s so refreshingly dry, and has such a tangy minerality, that it’s a pleasure to drink as a cocktail sipper.
For a wine that’s been made with a soft touch but still has some weight and finesse, this is a great value. It opens with aromas of ripe peach fuzz and crisp apple, a nice intermingling of flavors. Lemon and grapefruit rind flavors shine on the finish.
For a 10,000-case production out of the Central Valley, this is a pretty good Chardonnay, pleasant with acidity, citrus and vanilla that flirts with a buttery profile but demures before it’s too late. Grapes were grown under the Lodi Rules certified green program.
A little raw in acidity, with some green olive notes, but the rustic nature works in favor of the wine, grounding its rich blackberry, currant and chocolate flavors with earthiness. Tasted in a flight of much more expensive wines, this Cab did very well.
