Richer style with lots of lemon

Not a typical Sonoma SB as had lots of lemon and citrus but almost bigger french Graves style. Better with food than on the porch

Too much alcohol

Not bad, but just for very specific pairings. There is way too much alcohol for my personal taste (15.4 almost a fortified wine!)
Interesting convergence toward a Chardonnay but overall not my favorite.

Not bad, but not my fav

I feel that this is a great wine when paired with the right food, but as a stand along summer sipping wine, it is not my favorite. More like a Chardonnay (Of which I am not a fan) than a Sauvignon Blanc

Lovely

Another lovely summer sipper at a nice price. Great daily drinker.

Fantastic Fume

This is an incredible take on the old Sauv. Blanc. I say this because my wife doesn't like SB that much (especially from NZ), but she loved this wine. It is pale, like a Pinot Grigio, but it packs multiple flavors that are distinct and delicious. I agree with other commentators not to serve it too cold and let it breath for best results. A great deal for $15.

Nice play on Sauvignon Blanc

This is the first that I have had Sauvignon Blanc aged in oak and it is good. Still not heavy but adds some complexity that will be a nice change to throw into the summer mix.

Very nice wine

This Sauvignon Blanc is crisp yet complex. It melds citrus notes with minerality. I agree with other reviewers that it is reminiscent of a steel aged Chardonnay and that it is better served not too cool in order for the flavor to fully emerge.

Not an expert, but enjoyed it right out of the bottle.

So when I read Mark's review, I thought "(Expletive) I wish I would have opened this sooner. But I actually enjoyed the first sips after opening a bit more than I did after it had been open for a while. It was nice and crisp, pungent and had a great hint of grapefruit, all of which was lost to some extent after it had been open for a while. Not an expert by any stretch - so this is the reaction of an "amateur". Still we enjoyed it after the last drop was gone, but those first few sips were really good.

Lovely surprise!

What a nice surprise it was to open this bottle and expect something pleasant and light and innocuous - and then to discover a flavorful, nuanced glass ready to enjoy alone or with a light dinner. And a bargain! To note - my bottle was just barely chilled and perhaps over chilling should be avoided based on the other comments.

Unexpected complex

Much improved with air before drinking.the mix of sweet and citrus was a treat.
