We ferment our Cariblanco Sauvignon Blanc in small stainless steel barrels with a touch of French oak to bring together the best of the Old and New Worlds. Cariblanco offers bright, fresh citrus flavors on the nose with a seductively silky palate.

The combination of “pretty” fruit aromatics—yellow and green fruits, floral notes and just a hint of herbs—with pure, racy flavors on the palate is hard to resist. It is a refreshing drink all by itself, but it will accompany seafood and lighter white meats admirably. Read more in Byron's tasting notes ››

**(93 points)** - Sauvignon shines in Las Dichas, six miles from the Pacific, where the vines are refreshed by cold winds off of the sea. This wine’s aromas are timid, but the ripe fruit flavors and the penetrating acidity compensate for that aromatic shyness. This is creamy even as it’s refreshing, the flavors lasting as they will last in the cellar, where the wine will only gain in charm over the next few years. - *Wine & Spirits* **(93 points)** - A really complex nose with the whole spectrum of ripe sauvignon aromas (citrus, melon, passion fruit). A hint of herbal character makes it more lively. Juicy and elegant with a long, polished finish. - *James Suckling* **(93 points)** - *Descorchados* **(91 points)** - *Tim Atkin* **(9-9.5 points)** Pale gold in the glass, this wine smells of green apples, white flowers, and star fruit. In the mouth, gorgeous tart flavors of lime pith, kiwi, and star fruit have a nice wet pavement minerality and a beautiful balance with bright acidity. Lovely and distinctive. -*Vinography*
