Aaron: This is really nice and smooth but crisp like a sav blanc.  I enjoyed the subtle melon and pineapple with a pleasant surprise.  This is a good, solid bottle that’s easy to enjoy.  90 points

Teri: You will find tropical fruits along with some lemon on the smell. The wine feels ‘full” for a white (often I like to say these ‘drink like a red wine’). I enjoy the flavors of lime, peach, and some apricot with its crisp finish. Very easy to drink with nice complexity. 90 points.

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.
