"A floral sauvignon blanc with notes of grapefruit, lime pith and lemongrass. Good acid balance, yet slightly sweet." --Santa Rosa Press Democrat

 

89 "20% Semillon. Attractively floral in its first aromatic impressions, the wine also carries a suggestion of sweet grasses along with a touch of green peach and a wisp of honey. It is somewhat round in feel with early flavors that are surprisingly juicy, and it very much relies on latter palate acidity for balance. Service with Dover sole or other white fleshed fish would seem to be the right ticket to bring out the wine's best side." --Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine  

 

88 Editor's Choice. "This is one of the driest, cleanest and most acidic Sauvignon Blancs on the market, and for those reasons, I love it. It's a European-style wine, as fresh and crisp as a young Sancerre, with green grass, grapefruit and lime flavors leading to a clover honey finish. Beautiful as an apértif sipper." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine

 

"The aromas are thickly floral in a good way, and crisp apple notes are balanced with sweeter honey, rose oil and lychee. This whole mélange comes through in the flavors as well, there's nice texture to enliven the palate, and the acid kicks in to juice things up for a clean reprise of the aromas." --Tom Elkjer, Appellation America

 

"One of Anderson Valley's most unique white wines. Grassy, with a hint of semillon's waxiness, vanilla and tinges of honey and citrus, this is a very enjoyable wine to drink." --San Francisco Examiner
