Comments: This is a great Sauvignon Blanc! Today we ventured down to the Haymarket in Boston and grabbed some amazing fish (tilapia) and fresh asparagus, which turned out to be a great pairing with this wine. This Russian River Valley wine had some of the potent grassiness that we've come to enjoy in Marlborough SB along with flavors of lime and a touch of basil, but it finished with a creamy woodiness that differed from the flinty culmination typical of New Zealand varieties. We really enjoyed this one and look forward to having it again very soon.
Rating: 8/10

Wine Spectator gave the 2006 a 92! We're drinking the 2008, and it's great but perhaps a bit different. We're smelling pineapple and tasting lime and grapefruit. It continues to have a wonderful smooth finish.
