Among the sweeter of Sauv Blancs. Ripe ruby red grapefruit and light lemon. Needs food to finish a full glass with the high acid and high fruitiness.

2013, still holding strong. Circus peanuts, lemon rind, toasted nuts, caramel, vanilla, overripe peach and nice acid.

Side by side with the 16-nod goes to the 16. This came across a bit sweet and has lost some of it edge.

For the price could be one of the best out there. Layers upon layers of flavors. Great SB.

Holding up very nicely. Ripe pear with cinnamon spices, yellow apple, white peach, green tropical fruits, green banana, coconut and dill. I am guessing she used American oak on the wine.

Wednesday Wine Committee. As always, wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert.

Not a lot to say on this that hasn’t been said. One of the top SBs coming out of Cali year end and year out. Melka and Arkenstone are in an echelon alone in my opinion, followed by Addax, Bevan, Montagu, and this. Bold style SB. Not overly tart or acidic. Mineral notes and beautiful texture. I guessed high end Cali SB. ✔️

Peach and jalapeño, butter toast and cream. Seems to be richer and to have slight perceptible RS. People love this wine but it lacks tension for me but I'm just 😡 about the 🎃 so don't listen to me
