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.
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.
My Wine Rating – B-
