" Representative of the classic California-style Sauv Blanc, approximately 15% of the juice was barrel-fermented, with the balance cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Blended with 15% semillon for added complexity and body, this white shows aromas of white grapefruit and melon, followed by flavors of citrus, pears and a hint of nutmeg combined to produce a crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. According to the Wine Spectator: "Fragrant and intense, with crisp focus and good depth to lemon skin, grass and green apple notes. Food would soften the acidity, which lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2005." (08/03)"
