Wine Recommendation

Ventana Vineyards

2007 Sauvignon Blanc, Estate Grown
(Arroyo Seco)

A distinctive regional (cool-climate) mineral/spice and citrus aroma and a near-perfect structure for food. Not to be equated with either North Coast or New Zealand. Wine maker Reggie Hammond has a deft touch with many of his wines.

The Reviewer

Dan Berger

Dan Berger has been reviewing wine for 30 years, always seeking character related to varietal type and regional identity. He has never used numbers to rank wine and doesn’t plan to start any time soon. He believes that weight and concentration aren’t the only worthy aspects of wine and is especially smitten by cool-climate and food-friendly wines that offer distinctiveness.
