Taste profile from the winemaker: "This Sauvignon Blanc sports aromas of green apple, citrus, and hints of freshly mown grass. The bright fruit flavors are accentuated by racy acidity and end with a cleansing finish."

ABC Wines review: This wine has aromas of citrus and stone fruit with bright grassy notes. Smooth with a moderate body on the palate, the slight sweet fruit flavors are somewhat muted, replaced by a brisk acidity. The finish is fairly long though not particularly memorable. Serve this wine with most pasta dishes. Our score: A bit on the "old" side for this varietal, still this wine, especially at the price paid, rates on the high side of Average.

Winery website: Columbia Crest Winery. An image of the bottle could not be located. The displayed image is for the Grand Estates collection, though is similar in appearance to the wine reviewed.
