"Intense and vibrant, offering a mouthwatering mix of lime, white grapefruit and lemon sherbet flavors, set on a light and crisp frame. Impressively precise and focused, with a touch of minerality sneaking in on the finish. Drink now. 2,680 cases made. -M.W." (WS)

"The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Sybarite is lightly scented of kiwi and starfruit with chopped herbs, crushed stone and light guava scents. Light-bodied, it's zippy and tangy in the mouth with zesty acidity and an uncomplicated finish." (WA)

"Margerum's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Sybarite offers terrific varietal nuance, with that extra touch of mid-palate density that makes Sauvignon Blancs from Happy Canyon so distinctive. Lemon peel, orchard fruit, mint and white flowers add layers of nuance." (VM)

"Crisp pear flesh, lemon rind and white-flowers show on the nose of this always zesty, refreshing bottling by Doug Margerum. There's a stony grip to the sip, where citrus and Asian pear flavors compete for attention against the tremendously chalky texture. " (WE)

Winery Notes:
This wine is crafted from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the rolling hills of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA at McGinley Vineyard, Grassini Vineyard, Star Lane Vineyard and Happy Canyon Vineyard.
