"Legendary" 98 Points
This is the most luscious, mouth-watering, and exotic new California white wine we’ve sampled this year! It's also the most uniquely creamy and delicious Sauvignon Blanc we’ve discovered as it’s briefly aged in new French oak . This is a one-of-a-kind bottling that possesses tremendous depth and complexity. Crafted in a full-throttle, bold style, it offers a harmonious balance between honeysuckle and citrus (ripe grapefruit + lemon sorbet!) and an array of spices to enhance a wide array of menus ranging from shellfish to Thai chicken curry. Both a refreshing and stunning experience to savor over the next 5 years. - California Wine Advisors
