It's absorbed every ounce of oak and offers a Haut Brion Blanc-like bouquet of white grapefruit, tart pineapple, mint, white flowers, and salty minerality. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, and racy on the palate, with bright acidity, it's a Sauvignon Blanc meant for the cellar. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and it will evolve for two decades or more. collapse

The nose is gorgeous, with aromas of warm peaches, white lilac, beeswax, dried hay, kiwi and hints of fresh tarragon. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and elegantly styled with understated flavors, bright freshness and a long finish. I suspect this will improve and gain nuance over the next 3-5 years in bottle. - Erin Brooks collapse
