Review - 2016 Sauvignon Blanc



Sauvignon Blanc

 Umpqua Valley 2016 $20.00 GOOD VALUE

Sweet and slightly juicy in scent with appealing top notes of fresh herbs overlying its well-stated mix of melons and mildly citrusy fruit, Brandborg's is a spry, moderately rich Sauvignon Blanc that shows plenty of brightness and life to its lengthy, like-minded flavors. It is charged with lots of fruity acidity, but never once errs to wiry stiffness, and, while eminently tasty right now, it is guaranteed to hold up quite well and grow with a bit with age.
