Geyser Peak Winery
2011 River Ranches Sauvignon Blanc
California: Sonoma County: Russian River Valley
The Platinum River
Super pale gold in the glass, straight through from edge to center of the glass.
Zippy aromas leap from the glass, with tangerine, pink grapefruit, and Meyer lemon joining sweet lemongrass, green pepper jelly, lime flower, fresh flower blossom, and a touch of honeycomb.
A fun and complex white wine, with fresh citrus, grassy earth, and a subtle touch of pepper that is very reminiscent of a top New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Juicy fruit flavors of honeydew melon, nectarine, and guava are joined by freshly cut sweetgrass, rosemary, orange oil, lime zest, and a lovely kick of green pepper jelly.
A very smooth-drinking white wine, with approachable yet complex flavors and lingering notes of pepper.
Fresh red snapper, marinated with olives, lemons, and limes, then grilled and served with Thai fish sauce.
