Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: This wine has pineapple and kiwi fruit aromas with significant floral notes, and just a touch of spice. Smooth on the palate and of medium body, the fruit flavors have a mineral, almost flinty, character. The finish develops some smoky acidity but little else of any consequence. Our score: Yet another increasingly generic California sauvignon blanc that just doesn't seem as interesting or complex as its international cousins. Average for the price paid.
