Mission Briefing

Codename:

Herbaceousneous

We love Geyser Peak precisely for wines like today’s 2011 River Ranches Sauvignon Blanc. Incredibly well made, with a terrific blend of complexity and approachability, their wines are consistently among our tasting panel’s favorites.

Today’s wine practically begs to be paired with your next Asian-inspired dish. With its subtle grassiness, pop of acidity, and white fruit flavors, today’s Sauv Blanc is a delicious example of what Geyser Peak does best.

Agent Red grabbed as many cases of today’s excellent wine as he could, but it may not be enough, so please hurry!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Super pale gold in the glass, straight through from edge to center of the glass.

Smell:

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.

Taste:

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.

Finish:

A very smooth-drinking white wine, with approachable yet complex flavors and lingering notes of pepper.

Pairing:

Fresh red snapper, marinated with olives, lemons, and limes, then grilled and served with Thai fish sauce.
