88 points - “Highly Recommended” California Grapevine - September 1, 2011
Light yellow; attractive, floral, citrus, stone fruit, and melon aroma with hints of guava, gooseberry, and fresh mowed grass; medium body; crisp, tart, lemony, green apple and honeydew melon flavors with a tight, sharp, austere finish; lingering aftertaste.
87 points Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - September 1, 2011
...this slender, crisply balanced, squeaky-clean effort is irrepressibly fresh and easy to gulp. It is not big on body and depth, but that in no way compromises its very slightly spritzy appeals, and it will do yeoman service at picnics in taking the edge off of late-summer heat...

The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Vineyard (100% Sauvignon Blanc) was 30% barrel-fermented. Fresh herbs, cut grass, citrus, and a hint of gooseberry inform the nose of a crisp, refreshing, impeccably balanced Sauvignon that is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

What an awakening aroma! Floral, citrusy and zesty. It’s got similar characteristics to that feistiest of sauvignon blancs— New Zealand’s. It’s a great pick-me-up, like a short run on a crisp fall day (in New England, that is, not South Florida.) The Chateau Ste. Michelle web site makes note that 2010 was one of the coolest vintages on record and a year that tested the winemaker’s patience. Let’s just say patience as a virtue is well defined in this wine. It’s a racy grapefruit across the tongue, with lingering acidity along the sides and back, and leaves a feeling of effervescence. Seventy percent aged in stainless steel and 30 percent in oak produce a wine with fresh fruit character underlined by complexity and texture.

Maybe it's the result of global warming or something else, but the flavor profile of Chateau Ste Michelle's 2009 Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is brilliant. Its sharp and laser bright fruits are a great match for this summer's seafood. It's not your typical grassy style, and the rich citrus leans away from grapefruit. Oh, it's plenty bright, to be sure, and the nose carries a bit of melon and herb, but the 11 percent Semillion and 22 percent barrel fermentation add depth and complexity. Round up your usual cast of characters and start things off with a glass.
