Reviews and Ratings

This 100% estate-grown wine is the inaugural vintage that’s certified biodynamic. Free sulphur: 10 mg/L. Grgich taps estate parcels in American Canyon and Carneros for this racy but deep-flavored effort. The 2010 is particularly dramatic, full of verbena, kaffir lime, apricot and melon flavors, with an intense freshness but subtle weight. They’ve embraced a style that transcends the old-time moniker – as even they seem to know, adding “Dry Sauvignon Blanc” on the label. Source: Jon Bonné, San Francisco Chronicle

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