Brander Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Au Naturel (93WE)

“Cut grass, dark green herbs and yellow apple aromas show on the nose of this bottling. It’s very lean on the palate with a zippy, energetic acidity that cuts right through the cement, crushed stone and serrano flavors, engaging the palate on all sides.” – Matt Kettman, 12/1/2022
