#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
This luscious Sauvignon Blanc begins with a complex, mouthwatering aroma of golden delicious and honey crisp apples accented with crème brulée and sweet Meyer lemon. Sophisticated mineral notes appear as the wine opens. An underlayment of lychee fruit, ripe pineapple and white peach then follows. The rich palate is finely tuned, with an
excellent, refreshing balance. If possible, allow some of this vintage to age in your cellar ? patience will bring ample reward.
"Extremely complex, with layers of honeysuckle, apricot, peach, lemon curd, mineral and nectarine that are rich, fleshy, ripe and very generous, with a juicy acidity and plenty of aromatics. The finish just lingers on and on. Drink now through 2016. 8,005 cases made."
