At first swirl, a bright beam of golden color dances in the sunlight, almost inviting one in for those first aromatic essences. Pungent aromas come forward such as grapefruit, citrus, and honeydew melon. A few more swirls of the glass reveal a wonderful depth and concentration in the wine. On the palate, tropical fruit characters abound, such has white peach and pineapple. Honeysuckle elements from the Sauvignon Musqué linger, creating a rich mouthfeel without any cluttering oak characters. A long and lingering finish culminates the progression of this dynamic and beautiful Sauvignon Blanc.
"Dry, dry, dry is the name of the game with this Sauvignon Blanc. It's rich in Meyer lemon, kaffir lime and pineapple flavors, with intense, zesty acidity for clean balance, and the finish is spicy and stimulating. A beautiful cocktail wine to get a fancy dinner started. Editors' Choice."
