WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Fred Brander and winemaker Fabian Bravo study Sauvignon Blanc through several bottlings each year, but this Santa Ynez Valley appellation cuvee is an early favorite for 2013. Delicate flinty notes on the nose are bolstered with honey dew and apple. The palate leads with a lot of zing that evolves into flavors of kiwi and pear, with a slightly buttery, almost vanilla finish.
According to Antonio Galloni - Bright grapefruit, lemon peel and mineral notes are laced together in the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley. Drink this crisp, steely white over the next year or two.
Tasting Notes - Rich, plush, and brimming with an almost tropical exuberance, this wine leads with a nose of lychee nut, honeydew melon, hibiscus blossom and wet stone, while flavors of lemon meringue pie, orange zest, white nectarine, and guava round out the deliciously ripe palate. 13.3% ABV.
