tasting notes

With the cut and color of yellow sapphire, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc shines brilliantly in the glass and tempts with alluring aromas of lemon verbena, fall persimmon, and fresh white peaches. Gorgeous floral notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle, and night blooming jasmine intertwine with the top notes of the effusive bouquet. This unctuous styled white coats the palate with layers of lemon curd, quince paste, candle wax, and honeyed citrus marmalade. A vibrant spine of minerality supports the rich mouthfeel and lends notes of gunflint, powdery talc, and wet stone to the finish. [ download pdf ]
