Sbragia Family Vineyards 2012 Sauvignon Blanc

Sbragia Family Vineyards is a winery from Ed Sbragia, who had a long history as winemaker for Beringer Vineyards.  In 2008, he left to start a winery of his own with his wife, sons and daughters.  Sbragia Family Vineyards features single-vineyard wines ranging from Zinfandel to Chardonnay.  While there were definitely some high and low points in the couple of wines I tasted, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc was a decent find.  It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Dry Creek Valley.  It was aged in stainless steel, has 13.5% alcohol and retails for around $17.


Tasting Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc opens up with aromas of green apple and citrus.  The palate is full-bodied with bright tastes of grapefruit, lemon and pear.  There is also a bit of creaminess to the palate followed with a lingering, citrus-packed finish.  Refreshing and full of flavor!

Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with King Crab, shrimp cocktails or a salad topped with green apples and goat cheese.
