Forgot to write down the vintage. A smoky, grapefruit flavor. Quite crisp. Wine list mentions grapefruit, citrus and herbs but I didn't find it herbal or grassy like some S.B. A nice accompaniment to a pasta dish (flat wide pinkish--from tomato?--pasta topped by a dill cream sauce with chicken and shellfish broth, chopped scallions, wild mushrooms and crisp bacon bits. I have to say I really enjoyed the medley of flavors.
This sauce did seem to require a white wine and the Sauvignon Blanc was a fine match.
