Year in and year out this is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs made in California. Given the quality, the price is reasonable as well. Light golden in color. This wine is typically cloudy but bright. Even standing it up doesn't really eliminate the cloudiness but it doesn't seem to affect the quality. The nose is yellow grapefruit juice. With air, perhaps a bit of tropical fruit. On the palate, this is refreshing. Lively acidity. The yellow grapefruit juice carries thru with a slight underlying mineral base. Lovely medium body texture. Long finish. This will go well with lighter foods, salads, but also spicy Asian cuisines. It can probably age for five years easily but mine are lucky if they make it to the next year's release as they are so tasty young. This is my first time trying this vintagge, but it might be my favorite one yet.
