Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley – 2012
We were fortunate that the entire first and second picks made it into the final blend, which is reminiscent of our 2008 and 2009 vintages. The nose jumps out of the glass with apricot, nectarine, peach, lemongrass, grapefruit, honeydew melon, toasted pine nut and hyacinth. The mouth-feel is explosive yet crisp, featuring a mouthwatering cornucopia of fruit. The crispness drives flavors of spring flowers, hyacinth, grapefruit, kaffir lime and cardamom. The beauty of this wine is the aromatics, the power of fruit and exotic flavors, the bright acidity and truly long finish that lingers and lingers.
