This has a nice clean finish, though not too long, but again we are more used to reds. This stuff tastes real. Not too fruity, a very nice muskiness, no fakeness, not sweet and very balanced from what we can tell. Perfect alcohol balance as I wasn't even aware of the alcohol.

I could copy the review of the 2007 wine for this one.  Fruit forward Melons, grapefruit and orange peel are the main focus on the palate, surrounded by nice, soft oak whichs is so well integrated with the fruit, you hardly notice it.

Sampled 7/6/06. The wine has a lot of sugar on the nose with pears, lemons and pineapple too. The wine lacks the complexity (if there can be such a thing with a sauv blanc) of some Sauv Blans by adding a more noticeable element of grasses and/or light honey. The wine also has a bit of an acidic bite up front, but that quickly fades as the sugars take over.
