Lot 18/The Tasting Room, $13/bottle

Vivino Info


Aaron:  I smelled banana, apricot, and honey on this very fruity nose.  The flavor was not as sweet, featuring more crisp green apple and lemons.  As I took a second sip the citrus became a little too overwhelming for me, with most sour lime.  87 points

Teri: This is a beautiful Sav Blanc; Easy to enjoy. I smell tropical fruits on the nose and taste flavors of kiwi, passion fruit, and some almond on the finish. The wine itself also has almost a buttery mouthfeel. Refreshing. Would purchase again or share with others as a gift. 90 points

Vivino Profile


Aaron: This featured a peachy, butter smell with smooth almonds, butter, and green apples.  The finish featured even more butter (sorry for not mixing up the description here) with a little bread flour.  89 points

Teri: Light peach nose with heavy minerality. This overall Chardonnay is balanced in both mineral and fruit. I taste some lemon/orange along with almond and a hint of flint. It is easy drinking with bold enjoyable flavors. 89 points

World Market, $9.99

Vivino Info


Aaron:  Not surprisingly, this smells like sugar coated peach cobbler.  Very light, very sweet.  Sadly, not a ton of bubbles.  86 points

Teri: No surprises here, it tastes like peaches and smells like peaches. A surprisingly low level of bubbles and tastes as expected: sweet and peachy (like one of those peach candy gummies). This bottle would be good for those who like dessert wine or just new to wine overall. I could also see this being a good mixer for mimosas or other fruity cocktails. 85 points

Aaron: This sav blanc has bright melon and cucumber on the nose with a light flavor.  Interestingly, there was no taste on the tip of the tongue, but lots going on on the back and sides.  This was an interesting note as I enjoyed the vanilla and almond flavor. 90 points

Teri: St. Francis makes a quality Sauvignon Blanc. I smelled honey, lemon, and almond alongside flavors of tart citrus, cashew, and grass. Light in body and crisp. This bottle is bound to please multiple wine drinkers. 87 points
