Aaron:  This was great! Really smooth but crisp and balanced.  I enjoyed the subtle melon and pineapple flavors with what I can only describe as a sunrise (yea…corny I know).  Solid bottle that’s easy to enjoy, especially if you can find for a little discount.  90 points

Teri: This Sauvignon Blac is easy to drink with nice complexity overall and a crisp finish. It carries a nice smell of tropical fruits and lemon. The body of the wine is full with flavors of lime, peach, and some apricot. 90 points.

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

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

Introduced through Lot 18/The Tasting Room Wine Club


Aaron:  I equate the smell of this Sav Blanc to rose gold, possibly because of the strawberry and peach notes.  The flavor has some sweet honey and is easy to drink.  This has some good body and I’d recommend it for newbies.  90 points

Teri: Fruity and semi-sweet nose with smells of cantaloupe. I tasted floral undertones of rose hips with a nutty (cashew) and citrus flavor. There is a bit of a bit at the end which isn’t very pleasant. Not my favorite sauvignon blanc. 86 points
