The 2012 Cariblanco Sauvignon Blanc is pale in color but explosively flavorful. Primarily green fruits — green apples, kiwi and lime, some grapefruit rind and a touch of minerals. On the palate, it’s crisp and racy, but as always Cariblanco offers a deceptive richness and body on the mid-palate. Light on its feet and energetic but not skinny.

"This small-production Sauvignon Blanc (700 cases) overdelivers on its price by a factor of two or three times. It gets going with crisp, crystalline aromas of passion fruit and briny grapefruit. A pure, juicy, ripped palate offers lime, grapefruit, tangerine and herb flavors, while the finish is minerally and clean."
