Aaron:  This has a mellow chestnut smell then molds into a very easy drinking smooth flavor.  There more leaves and vines than fruit and it was admittedly a bit watered down before the finish but this is great for hot days.  There was some noticeable melon on the end.  90 points

Teri: If they put the smell of this wine into a candle I would purchase it; strong scents of green apple, lemon, and honeysuckle. The flavors on the wine live up to its incredible smell–in both intensity and variety. The wine ends with a crisp finish but long hints of the flavor linger far after the swallow. I tasted bright lemon and grapefruit with green apple, a hint of citrus, and nodes of florals from start to finish. I normally think of Sauvignon Blanc as a light refreshing wine, but this far exceeded my expectations. This is both refreshing, smooth, and crisp while drinking long and full like a red. 92 points
