“The producer sources from a handful of exceptional sites here, including Hyde in Carneros and Farina on Sonoma Mountain, as well as its own St. Helena estate. Juicy and lengthy with power and substance, it is fresh and well integrated, blossoming in bright lemon peel, peach and guava.” - Wine Enthusiast

“Fans of this pure, clean, crisp mineral-driven gem will not be disappointed with the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Opening with vibrant lemon and lime juice scents with hints of mandarin peel, coriander seed, chalk dust and wild thyme, it bursts with zesty flavor in the mouth. Medium-bodied, there's a lovely satiny suggestion to the texture and lots of oyster shell and pebbly layers, finishing deliciously refreshing.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“A medium-bodied white with intense aromas of guava, passion fruit, lemon zest and green apple. Fresh, dry and fruity with bright, tangy acidity. Drink now.” - James Suckling

“One of my favorite Sauvignons from Napa comes from this great estate, and their 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is another winner, revealing a light gold hue as well as lively notes of white grapefruit, candied lemon, and white flowers. Medium-bodied, lightly textured, and beautifully balanced, with a salty, crisp, dry finish, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 3-5 years or so.” - Jeb Dunnuck
