“The attractive 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Bavarian Lion Vineyard has oodles of melons jumping from the glass along with crisp floral notes.

94 Points - Amazingly sleek and refined, with a pure, rich, juicy core of blackberry, raspberry, anise, cedar and black licorice flavors. Walks a tightrope between intensity and grace, finesse and authority. Long and persistent on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2032. - James Laube, Senior Editor Wine Spectator
The 2015 vintage was the third consecutive year of drought in California wine country; which led to stressed vines and a smaller amount of incredibly intense, flavor-packed fruit; perfect for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. *Limit 2 bottle per customer
