Wine EnthusiastMerry Edwards, known best for her Pinot Noir, says this variety is a comparative joy. She bolsters the wine with Sauvignon Musqué and oak aging to build a richly creamy and full expression, marked by moderate acidity. Lemon meringue, peach and vanilla flavors add to its viscosity and sultry power.
Wine AdvocateScented of fresh lemon, white grapefruit and mowed grass with a touch of sage, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is medium-bodied on the palate with a very good intensity of uncomplicated citrus and herbs flavors, finishing zesty.
