Terry rated this wine as 98/100 with the following review:

Excellent.
Herman Steuernagel reviewed this wine as follows:

too much grapefruit
The right window of flavor. That’s what Michael Scholz is shooting for when he makes sauvignon blanc. Scholz is the winemaker behind our wine-of-the-week winner - the St. Supery, 2011 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. In the blind tasting, this sauvignon blanc was zesty with good acidity. It had aromas and flavors of grapefruit, lime, lemon zest and spice. Source: Peg Melnik, Press Democrat

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.
