(92 Points)  Another drop-dead gorgeous wine, the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Aurora Point is laced with sweet apricots, white flowers, ginger, passion fruit and crushed rocks. Soft, perfumed and beautifully layered, the 2010 impresses for its soft, enveloping personality. Pure class, that’s all there is to it. The Aurora Point is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from high-altitude vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Stonestreet is arguably the greatest undiscovered gem in the Kendall-Jackson portfolio. The wines are always distinctive and full of personality. Best of all, they remain exceptionally fairly priced. I hope readers will take the time to check out these fabulous new releases. The Sauvignon-based whites and Chardonnays are especially strong this year. I find less excitement in the 2010 Cabernets, which come across as lacking a bit of depth, most likely owing to rain during the harvest. Wine Advocate #206 Apr 2013 Reviewer: Antonio Galloni

Winery Notes: The 2011 Aurora Point is all personality: passion fruit, lemon verbena, basil and elderflower flood the nose with a hint of gunsmoke in the background. The palate opens with a lush entry and cascades through a series of flavors — lemon, guava and quince — all held in check by quinine and a strong gravelly grip. Only our fourth bottling from this 900-foot site, it’s become abundantly clear that the mountain does indeed produce spectacular Sauvignon Blanc.
