More Wine Reviews and Ratings

The vibrant, crisp Ruby grapefruit from Lake County combines with the exotic citrus tones of Mandarin and Blood oranges from the Mendocino fruit. The resulting wine is complex yet elegant. The marriage of flavors is like a tropical fruit tart, with good acidity and fleshy citrus flavors, all over a layer of "creme patissiere." The combination of vineyards and appellations also brings out a wonderful mineral character typical of Sancerre from France. 80% tank fermented and 20% "neutral" barrel fermented, this wine maintains a great balance in both the nose and mouth between the crisp, exotic tropical citrus fruit (tank fermentation) and the creamy character of the barrel fermented wines. This is our favorite style of Sauvignon Blanc. You can sip it by itself or pair it with a myriad of lighter fare.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
