Tight at first, then generous on the nose, the wine bursts with classic aromas of white peach, pear and freshly cut grass as well as stone, butterscotch, and clove. Shards of minerality, white fig and lemon zest dominate the palate, with beams of acidity following through the extensive finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Blank Stare gives a gregarious nose of ripe peaches, passion fruit and grapefruit with touches of cedar, dried herbs and fresh straw. Medium-bodied, it packs a punch with loads of citrus and tropical flavors supported by racy acid and finishes on a lingering herbal note. 4,700 cases produced.
