Taste profile from the winemaker: "The Taylor's Vineyard Sauvignon Musqué displays a depth of character not often found in Sauvignon Blanc. Stone fruit aromas such as melon and Asian pears are evident along with a strong sense of minerality and texture. On the palate, these unique characteristics combine to fool one into thinking barrel fermentation is evident. However, 100% stain-less steel fermentation was used in making this wine. The finish has excellent balance and acidity making it a very food friendly wine."

ABC Wines review: This strikingly different wine has bright, floral, fruity aromas upon pouring. The initial taste is one of mineral crispness. It is followed by full, complex tropical fruit flavors with some herbal, almost spicy characteristics. The finish is long, briefly acidic, and very pleasant. This wine can be paired with a wide variety of foods. Rated 87 points by Wine Spectator in August 2006. Our score: Above average to excellent.
