This wine fooled me as when I tasted it blind I would have never guessed this to be Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose I get a lot of Banana, Pear, Green Apple, and Cinnamon. There is also some nice rocky minerality, and a touch of new oak. This was obviously fermented aged in new oak barrels for at some point in its life. This is a big, rich SB but still has some decent acidity. Good, but not great. If you are looking for a Rombauer alternative this would be right up your alley!
