87 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Sep/Oct 2012
Pale yellow. Shy nose hints at lemon and pepper. Riper in the middle palate than the nose suggests, but with only moderate definition and grip to the flavors of citrus fruit, mint, green melon and herbs. In a middle-of-the-road style.

The Crossings 2011 Sauvignon Blanc presents a pronounced nose of passion fruit, pink grapefruit, and bay leaf with a slightly sweaty/musky undercurrent. Medium bodied, crisp and with a good concentration of apple and citrus flavors, it finishes medium-long. Drink it now to 2013.

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc displays lemon and lime aromas with some grassy notes and a touch of peas. Medium-bodied and crisp, it has adequate fruit concentration and a simple, medium to long length. Drink it now to 2014.
