Review: 2009 Quivira Sauvignon Blanc Fig Tree Vineyard

Quivira is a perennial fave at Drinkhacker HQ — check our glowing coverage of the 2008 version of this same wine here — and the 2009 sauvignon blancs are now hitting the market.

This wine isn’t quite the hit that the 2008 was, but it’s still a success. Sharply acidic, but vibrant with apple flavor, it’s undone a bit by a heavy, earthy finish that’s a bit at odds with the rest of the wine. Better with food.

B+ / $18 /
