93pointsPeter Franus 2007 Sauvignon Blanc (Carneros)

Editors' Choice

There aren't too many Sauvignon Blancs from Carneros, but judging from this beauty, the grape thrives there. In the right hands, of course. This one's from great vineyards, including Truchard's. It's a magnificent wine in the white Bordeaux style, rich and lush in mineral-laden gooseberry, honeysuckle, white peach, Asian pear and lemongrass flavors, with a vibrant edge of tangy pepper spice.
