90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 88% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sémillon and 2% Muscat, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve slowly grows in intensity, unfurling to give pronounced green apples, white peach and lemon curd scents with hints of paraffin wax, orange blossoms and crushed rocks. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture and bold freshness supporting the intense stone fruit and citrus layers, finishing long and minerally.
The 2018 Honig Rutherford Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by jasmine, peach and white nectarine. Complemented by notes of key lime, ruby grapefruit and Meyer lemon. A remarkable equilibrium between oak and fruit lends itself to a creamy, rich mid-palate that finishes with the essence of lemon curd and a hint of toasted marshmallow.
