A very strong nose on this one. I loved the aromas of grapefruit and lemon with gooseberry. I tried this wine at the actual winery earlier this year (it's really cute) and again today. It's a really interesting Sauvignon Blanc as you can taste both the parts that were fermented in stainless steel and the other parts that were barrel fermented. I always enjoy the wines from the Santa Barbara region.
