Chasing Venus 2014  Sauvignon Blanc
92 points
$16
Best Buy
Pale yellow straw color. Bright, fruity aromas and flavors of green pepper, pickled jalapeno, and green tomato with an even, tangy, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, engaging, medium-long lemon curd, lime, gherkin, and grass finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A nice snappy, savory sauvignon blanc sipper with great purity.

Bright pale silvery straw color. Lively, interesting aromas of roasted pepper, ripe and dried mango, grapefruit, and floral lipstick with a soft, lively, dryish medium-full body and a warming, involved, buoyant fruit salad, melon, lemon pepper, and pepper finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A lively and flavor-packed sauvignon blanc with exotic varietal character.

Bright light golden straw color. Bright, citrusy, fruity creamy aromas of yellow peppers, lemon, banana blossoms, and gooseberry jam with a glycerous, lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, subtle, medium-length melon and grass finish with crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. A solid sauvignon blanc.
