A pleasant, grassy, fresh herb note lends an appealing green edge to the crisp melon, grapefruit and tangerine flavors, offering a lip-smacking finish.

Bevan fashions three Sauvignon Blancs, one of which rivals the finest Sauvignon Blancs made in California. The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard was aged in stainless steel (75%) and in new Francois Freres barrels (25%). Its clonal material is unknown, but it is a special site, and just over 1,000 cases were produced. One of the most prodigious Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted from anywhere, it offers up notes of beeswax, honeysuckle, caramelized grapefruit and hints of pineapple as well as spice. With fabulous intensity, terrific acidity, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and super length, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years, perhaps longer.
