Taste profile from the winemaker: "A bright silver lime color and wonderful citrus, fig and vanilla aromas. This wine [employs] less oak to preserve the brightness and zest of this varietal."

ABC Wines review: Fresh aromas of lemon and lime are exhibited by this wine. Full and smooth on the palate, the flavors are a bit more vegetal than fruity with some crisp mineral notes. The finish brings out the oak character typical of California sauvignon blancs with accompanying heat. A decent wine but there are better choices at this price point. Our score: Average.
