Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is absolutely gorgeous. Melon, pear, fig and sage are all beautifully delineated in the glass. Drink this crisp, intensely aromatic Sauvignon over the next few years."

Product Description:

"Former sommelier Eric Railsback makes these Loire-inspired wines with Justin Willett of Tyler. The house style emphasizes vibrancy and energy, much of which comes from picking on the early side. These wines are loaded with personality, class and character." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Working with 3 different vineyards to the eastern edge in the Santa Ynez Valley in the AVA Happy Canyon. The vineyards are approximately an equal split in terms of volume of blend and are: McGinley, Grassini, and Star Lane. The fruit was picked on the early side (21.8, 22.5 and 22.8 brix on the different parcels), whole cluster pressed to tank and then fermented in both stainless steel and in neutral barrels. After fermentation, all lots were put in neutral barrels through the winter before being racked out to tank a few months prior to bottling." - Winery
