After the Gauthier Sonoma Valley Zinfandel attracted so much attention, I thought I’d try this Sauvignon Blanc, which also looked quite good. Probably because my expectations were high, I wasn’t wowed by it, but it is quite good for the price.
I thought the wine had nice fruit of yellow lemon and melon, good acid and a very nice minerally structure. I’d wish it to be more complex, but it’s a tasty and well-made wine for the price.
