Bob Campbell - MW Bob Campbell, December 2017
Richer, weightier and more developed than the 2015. Still fairly austere with pronounced struck flint character. Quite fleshy with good, ripe and fruity acidity. Approachable now but with plenty of cellaring potential.

A beautifully judged barrel-fermented sauvignon, really complex but tightly integrated.

A beautifully judged barrel-fermented sauvignon, really complex but tightly integrated. Shows attractive lemon, lime and grapefruit citrus fruit aromas as well as ripe peach and green mango across some gently waxy, lanolin-like notes and dried grass. The oak is subdued and discreet, adding a neat spicy and gently mealy savory thread. There's a wealth of flesh and weight below, handy oak spice runs trough some crisp and concentrated melon and papaya with a wash of lime juice; great acidity, smooth and supple texture, finishes succulent and flavorsome, gently creamy. Drink now.

The 2014 Wild Sauvignon has evolved into a lovely array of lemongrass, lime leaves and coriander seed hints over a core of grapefruit and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautiful satiny texture with elegant herbal flavors and a long, lively finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

It's aromas are slightly feral, adding a funky edge to scents of smoke and grilled white nectarines. The silky texture stands out, as does the long, citrusy finish outlined by hints of pencil shavings.

(fermented in mostly old French oak barriques with wild yeasts; roughly two-thirds of this wine went through malolactic fermentation): Fresh scents of lemon verbena tea, menthol and smoke. Boasts terrific clarity, energy and cut to its flavors of tangy citrus fruits, white stone fruits and minerals, along with a complicating tropical fruit element. Sappy, dense Sauvignon Blanc with terrific underlying structure. This wine was bottled in November of 2015 following nearly a year in barrel and several months in tank. The Wild Sauvignon is routinely slightly higher in alcohol and lower in acidity than Judd's stainless steel version. - Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2016
The lemon-lime and lemongrass notes are precise, set on a light and supple body. Peppery, fresh herb accents linger on the finish, where the flavors crescendo and a lemon verbena detail sings out. Drink now. 700 cases... The lemon-lime and lemongrass notes are precise, set on a light and supple body.
