Wine Details

Fermentation in oak gives this wine a more muscular feel, with a wide-ranging aromatic profile. Effusive and complex on the nose, with blossomy banana and grapefruit notes backed by deeper mango and meaty papaya. Zesty on the palate, but perfectly balanced between citrus and tropical fruits. Excellent length and purity on the lip-smacking finish.

Cam Confidential

Lot 554 is sourced from one of the region’s pioneering producers, renowned not only for their Sauvignon Blanc but for being one of the first gravity fed wineries many decades before they became de rigeur. Grown from hillside vineyards above the Dry Creek Valley, this Musqué clone is meticulously guided through whole cluster press and fermentation by the estate’s winemaker, finishing in new French oak for a softer, subtle exit on the palate.

An exotic, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc for your drinking pleasure - at $13, it's almost 50% off their retail price of $25. This is one of our smaller acquisitions for the year – only 250 cases are available!

I consider myself a Sauvignon Blanc snob. This is crisp, delicious and a great value. Will be purchasing more.

This bottle matches the description to a t - a little citrusy, dry but smooth, summer in a bottle. A typical classic sav blanc without a doubt. We enjoyed ours crisp on a warm afternoon, but could likely hold up next to a salad or light fish or chicken meal.

Exactly as advertised - crisp with nice balance between citrus and fruits. Slightly zesty and lingers perfectly. Only a hint of the oak. Late summer deck companion with a cheese sampler. Great value, competes easily with a $20 white.

A hint of citrus, but just enough that I can't put this in my everyday wine classification. It'll go to specific food parings and specific moods.

Crisp with the right amount of citrus. Full bodied for a Sauvignon blanc. Will certainly order more.

I really like the lightness of this sauvignon blanc. Best pairing for a Kir or Blanc-Cassis!

SVB is our go to white wine. This does not disappoint. I ordered some when it was first released and just placed a re-order.

Not to mention ... "the $ is right!"

I liked this a lot. It's zippy and clearly SB, but has a nice rounded and even creamy feel. Definitely california and not New Zealand. A really nice wine for the price.
