Wine SpectatorCrisp and light, with lemon and green apple skin flavors, showing a touch of grapefruit on the airy, mouthwatering frame. Drink now. 70,000 cases made, 30,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a fairly worked, commercial style of Sauvignon that hasn't fared well in the difficult vintage that was 2018. Sure, it's got the citrus, stone-fruit, green-bell pepper and tomato leaf characters this style is known for, but the acidity is searing and hard to take, bowling the fruit right over.
