The 2008 Trumpeter Torrontes has a smooth, creamy citrus flavor. It's an off-dry, light-to-medium bodied Torrontes with debatable acidity. By debatable I mean that I thought its acidity was weak but my wife found it crisp. It's also a relatively sweet wine. This Torrontes has very moderate aromas of lemon, maybe lemon zest, and other citrus.
The St. Francis Winery 2008 Chardonnay is a straw-golden color with green-tinged edges and nice clarity. The flavors of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay are very aromatic and consist mostly of apple, pear, and creamy vanilla. The acidity is strong enough to make the St. Francis Chardonnay quite refreshing.
The Paso Robles 2008 Sauvignon Blanc from Robert Hall is a bright straw gold with distinct green edges. It's color depth is fairly pale in nature and it has nice clarity. The flavors of the Paso Robles 2008 slightly fruity, but there is also some herby and mineral edges. It's a medium-to-full bodied wine with marked acidity and it is fairly dry.
This is a dry, medium-bodied wine with marked acidity. The Priest Ranch 2007 Sauvignon Blanc doesn't taste nearly as strong as it smells. The flavors are only low to moderate, with some barely detectable apple and maybe tropical fruit as well.
At times it has a slightly bitter aftertaste and it really needs to be cold to be enjoyed properly — as it warms, an unpleasant alcohol burn develops. Unfortunately, the colder it is the more the flavors are suppressed. In the end, this unresolvable tension causes the wine to be too unbalanced.
The aromas of the Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay are slightly tropical in nature with a bit of melon. The overall intensity is moderate, but not clearly identifiable. It's difficult to detect any oak in the bouquet. This medium-bodied Chardonnay dry with flavors of creamy or buttery tropical fruit - primarily pineapple and perhaps again a bit of melon. There may also be some citrus around the edges, but that's difficult to say for sure.
