    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense citrus blossom, honeysuckle, and tropical undertones of pineapple, calamansi lime, and passion fruit describe the nose of the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc. The wider use of the Musque clone in this blend contributes to this vintage's intense floral and tropical flavors. Subtle notes of marzipan, ginger, and tarragon add complexity in the finish complimenting the lemon meringue and strawberry guava base. The crisp minerality lifts the flavors in the palette making this wine perfect with spicy dishes.

    Actually, 2.5+ stars. Color, this wine lacks that (sauvignon-blancy) color. It is cloudy, not very clear, almost seems like unfiltered, not very appealing color. On the nose, a LOT of carrots dominating, yes carrots! Also there is some apricot that is still vibrant in here, some barnyard smell, yes! There are also some eucalyptus and some (weird) flours, grassiness, some minerality, a little bit awkward for sauvignon blanc! Midpalate, barnyardy!, crushed carrots, apricot, a hint of earthiness, minerality, considerably full body. Finish, I am having some awkward finish, some wood, earthiness, the carrots and barnyard are still vibrant, balanced and round, lingering, a little (very little) hint of lime. Overall, this is a good demonstration of why I always say California is not the place that you'd consider at the first place for sauvignon blanc! This wine tastes (almost) nothing like sauvignon blanc. Yes, it is balanced, round, and has a lingering finish, but still not (sauvignon blancy). Bottled at 14.5%, which is extremely high for a sauvignon blanc! I am 86 on this effort. In two years this may get 86+ points. Happty drinking!
