Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Bottled in June 2016, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc gives up intense white peaches, grapefruit and lemon tart notes with hints of dried herbs, struck match, baker's yeast and fresh hay. Medium-bodied, the palate lends a lovely satiny texture with a refreshing backbone lifting the vibrant citrus flavors, finishing long and steely. Drinking nicely now, it should cellar gracefully for 5-7+ years. 600 were cases made.Drink Dates: 2017-2025Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
